Prom the accounts contained in 
daily newspapers of robberies, hold- 
ups, murder*, etc., etc., one stops to 
figure out what the country is corn- 
ins; to. Is it a lack of vigilance up- 
the part of peace officers that so 
crime is committed? Or is it 
true that the cause of much of 
lawlessness of the land may ha 
ited to ut lad? r > io*t. the 
and women that make up the 
juries of our courts? So much 
ird for law and order has been 
at Newport, Ky., that Gov. 
Morrow has had to point out to the 
civil authorities of that city their 
duty, with an imperative demand to 
enforce such measures as will in- 
sure pesce ond the preservation of 
life to the people of Newport ond to 
the stranger who perchance may en- 
ter its gates. Strange, indeed, that 
men should be permitted to hold of- 
fice who hoven't the backbone to en- 
force the law. Much of crime and 
lawlessness could be checked if we 
had the right kind of men in office — 
men who would disdain to accept any 
part of the bandit's ill-gotten gains. 


Henry Watterson, Kentucky's most 
famous newspaper writer, died at 
his winter home, in Jacksonville, 
Fla., at 6:30 o'clock Thursday morn- 
ing, December 22d, 1921, aged 31 
years. Hr. Watteraon'a brilliant ed- 
itorial career in connection with the 
Louisville Courier-Journal gave to 
him a national reputation, and no 
writer of his day was ever more er- 
tenaively quoted than Marse Henry, 
as he was affectionately called. He 
was a Democrat in politics and stood 
high in the councils of his chosen 
party. His prolific pen is forever 
stilled and all newspaperdora mourns 
the loss of one of the most gifted 
journalist this country has ever 
known. His devoted wife and son 
were at his bedside during the clos- 
ing hours of the earthly career of 
this illustrious newspaper man, than 
whom no better ever contributed an 
article for the reading public. The 
remains of Mr. Watterson will rest 
in a vault at Jacksonville, Fla., un- 
til spring, and then be removed to 
Louisville, Ky., and be buried in Cave 
Hill Cemetery. • 

The Louisville Times has suggest- 
ed that an Old Kentucky Home be 
built in the Kentucky State Fair 
grounds from logs snd timbers sup- 
plied by the different counties of the 
State, the Home to have all the fur- 
nishings that still make the Old 
Kentucky Home a delightful reality 
to many and a fond recollection to 
many ..... """'"V •*••»•* has b^n 
pronounced a tmy^j" thought by 
Commissioner Hanna and members 
of the State Fair commission as well 
as members of the Kentucky Histor- 
ical Society. It is the idea to set 
aside one acre and a half of ground 
for the project. 

It has been suggested that the 
newspapers of the state take up in 
their respective counties the task of 
securing a log or logs and naming 
a representative of the county to 
come to Louisville and help erect the 
building. The plan, you know, is to 
have the house built just as was 
done in pioneer times when every 
man in. the community joined in at 
the house raising, but in this case 
every county in the State will have 
a hand at actually building the Old 
Kentucky Home. 

Boone county should do its part 
in this praiseworthy undertaking. 
There will be very little expense at> 
tached, except the securing and ship- 
ping i!" *—» to LouisyilW i 

Since our last issue the year 1921 
has passed into history and the new 
year — 1922, has entered upon its 
cycle of time, and many new "re- 
solves" will be made for the year. 
If you have not already made all of 
your resolutions, why not include in ' 
the hat "a resolve to quit borrowing 
ypur neighbor's paper and to sub- 
scribe for and have your home paper 
sent to your own address." This will 
be more satisfactory to you and a 
peat help to ib« pnoJiaber. Try \K; 
for you know that it is the "home 
paper" that rejoices with you in 
your prosperity and sympathizes with 
you when you are overtaken by ad- 
versity. Every week day in the year 
the editor labors for the good of the 
people in pene*-al. His. columns are 
ever open for the advancement of 
education and moral training. Relig- 
ious matters slwsys find space in col- 
umns of your home paper. When a 
darling babe arrives to brighten your 
home and to make life worth the liv- 
ing, the fact is mentioned in the 
"old homo" paper; when death in- 
vades your home, it is your home 
paper that pays tribute to your loved 
one's memory, and points you to Him 
who alone can comfort you in your 
time of grief. If your fair and ac- 
complishel daughter or dutiful and 
noble son puts on the yoke of mat- 
rimony, it is the home paper that 
commends them to the world with 
heartfelt wishes for their happiness 


New Year's wa 9 a great old night 
In many of the big towns' before 
prohibition cast its shadow over the 
high jinks! The fact that they were 
urged to swear off on old habits, 
seemed to incite a Jot of people to 
show that "They should worry." 

They appeared to have resolved 
not to be any better in the new year 
than in the old one. 

Many companies of people from 
time immemorial have daneed the 
old year out to the tune of rhythmic 
music. Under such inspirations the 
new period of time looks rosy with 
anticipation. New Year is neither a 
titnfe for melancholy retrospection 
nor for dissipation. Some of the re- 
vellers would be better off to spend 
these dividing hours at the watch 
night meeting, gaining there some 
new purpose and determination. 

And over serious people might 
look at life with more hopefulness, 
if they sometimes saw the old year 
out amid scenes of merriment.

ing project for the schools of the 
county to put across. The log or logs 
could be collected, a day set aside 
for their dedication to the purpose 
of erecting the Old Kentucky Home 
in which every log has a history all 
its own. We should like to hear some 
suggestions on the project. 


In the moral declension notably 
.i.^rked in American pubucrlife dur- 
ing and Since the Congressional elec- 
tions of 1918, few incidents have 
"been so depressng as that of the ef- 
fort made by this Michigan million- 
aire to purchase a seat in the Senate. 
Methods in that campaign, admit- 
tedly employed by him, by his broth- ' 
er and by his political supporters 
and henchmen, are little less than a 
rebuke and a menace to the people 
of Michigan and to the people of the 
whole nation as well. Evidence of 
this corruption is embodied in court 
records ss well as in the files of the 
Senate Committee on Elections, 
charged with investigating the case. 

This evidence, in conclusive form, 
is marshalled against Mr. Newberry 
by Senator Kenyon so smitingly that

"I will never consent to the par- 
don of this man. I know that in cer- 
tain quarters of the country there 
is a popular demand for the pardon 
of Debs but it shall never be accom- 
plished with my consent. Were I to 
consent to ( it, I should never be able 
to look into the faces of the mothers 
of this country who sent their boys 
to the other side. While the flower 
of American youth was pouring out 
its blood to vindicate the cause of 
civilization, this man, Debs, stood 
behind the lines, sniping, attacking 
and denouncing them. Before the 
war he had a perfect right to exer- 
cise his freedom of speech and to 
express his own opinion, but once 
the Congress of the United States 
declared war, silence on his part 
would have been the proper course 
to pursue. I know there will be a 
great deal of denunciation of me 
for refusing his pardon. They will 
say I am cold-blooded and indiffer- 
ent. This man was a traitor to his 
country, and he will never be par- 
doned during my Administration. .- 

That is what President Wilson 
said when he was asked to pardon 
Eugene V. Debs, the same Debs who 
was pardoned Christmas day by 
President Harding. 

Rev. R. F. DeMoisey after having 
occupied the pulpit at the Burling- 
ton Baptist church for five and one 
half years, preached his farewell 
sermon Sunday Dec. 25th. His re- 
marks were very touching, and his 
people wish for him a field where 
his work can be continued. He leaves 
the Burlington Baptist church after 
this long service without an enemy. 


One of the most novel exhibits 
planned for the National Health Ex- 
position is that of the Louisville 
health department. Because of the 
large appropriation needed, Dr. El- 
lis Owen, City Health Officer, has 
not officially announced his plans un- 
til he has the consent of Mayor 

He intends to have a moonshine 
still in operation, under permit of 
the Federal Prohibition Officers, but 
the liquor that comes from the "bus- 
iness" end of the coil will be poison. 
The distillation will be intended to 
show the danger in home-made li- 
quors as it will tun through lead, 
then a zinc coil and the mash will be 
cut with lye, methods said to be 
used often in the manufacture .of 
moonshine liquor. Many moonshin- 
ers use lead or zinc coils and others 
use lye, he says. The combination 
spells certain death, Dr. Owen says 
and he expects the little distillery to 
carry its message of warning more 
effectively than any pamphlet. 

He also will show emaciated imag- 
es of men and women adicted to the 
use of drugs and all the parapher- 
nalia used by "dope fiends." 


Not much money is taken away 
from the American taxpayer nowa- 
vL-^S by direct p. - . Lnion *. . ^.'^oh* 
lie treasuries. Most public funds are 
expended honestly. Where the tax- 
payer frequently suffers, however, 
is in the tendency to provide "rake- 
offs" to those who command influ- 
ence in the purchasing of supplies 
and making of contracts. 

Some easy going people are toler- 
ant about this spirit in politics, re- 
garding it as impossible to stamp it 
out, and believing that public ser- 
vices are frequently tainted with it. 
But human nature may be more hon- 
est than they think it is, and if the 
voters exercised reasonable care in 
electing officials, abuses would dis- 

Modern graft is a skillful propo- 
sition, and the taxpayer who has to 
pay for it never knows where the ' 
money went. If the manufacturer of 
a certain form of supplies must pay 
$100 to some official to secure his 
favor on a $500 contract, the bidder 
is going to put up his price by $100, 
to pay the cost of the rake-off. The 
people pay the whole bill. , .

The new silver dollar of the 1921 
design — the "Peace" dollar — was put 
in circulation Tuesday, according to 
the Treasury. Coinage of the new 
dollar was being rushed by the 
Philadelphia Mint, officials said to- 
day, and the first dollar of the new 
series struck off has been presented 
to President Harding. 

The new dollar has the head of 
Liberty on one side and in the other 
a dove upon a mountain top, clutch- 
ing an olive branch struck by the 
rays of the sun, with the word 
"Peace" beneath it. 

This is the first change in the de- 
sign of the dollar since 1878, and

Until the sudden fall of the mer- 
cury which came on Saturday night, 
the 24th, of Dec. 1921, was the mild- 
est known for many years. Accord- 
ing to the statements of some of the 
older citizens, it has not been cold 
enough to force the snakes to hiber- 
nate, as several have been killed 
during the past month. 

Eugene V. Debs and 23 others 
who were convicted for violating the 
espionage act have been pardoned 
by President Harding. The Presi- 
dent a short time ago pardoned Felt- 
man, Kruse and Schoberg who were 
convicted in the United States Cir- 
cuit Court at Covington for a viola- 
tion of the act and the conviction 
was sustained on appeal to the U. S. 
Supreme court. The President in ex- 
tending executive clemency to these 
men who did not espouse the cause 
for which our boys were fighting to 
maintain on the battle fields in 
France can expect nothing but the 
strongest condemnation from the 
members of the American Legion 
and all Americans who took part in 
this great struggle. We do not be- 
lieve that the President in granting 
these pardons, has performed an act 
that will be endorsed by the mem- 
bers of his own party. What will the 
Gold Star mothers in the United 
States think of this?

From the evidence taken before 
the Congressional Committee it ap- 
pears that there was nearly $200,- 
000 spent in Michigan to secure the 
election of Senator Newberry, yet 
it is claimed by his friends that a 
number of business men subscribed 
this fund, which is more than four 
times the salary that he will receive 
as Senator. The law of the IL S. as 
well as the law of Michigan provides 
that a candidate can not spend in 
order to secure his election one twen- 
tieth of this sum; yet it will be over- 
looked that the sum was spent by 
others in behalf of Mr. Newberry. 
Why would any set of men spend 
such an enormous sum to secure the 
election of a man to public office? 
Is the honor of having a seat in that 
august body, the United States Sen- 
ate, worth any such sum, T, «s it 
become a question of barter and 
sale? The very fact that such a large 
sum was expended in securing the 
election of any man to the United 
States Senate, at once, cast a dark 
shadow on that election yet you wjjl 
find that this election is being de- 
defended, even Senator Ernste from 
Kentucky will maintain that there 
was nothing wrong in the election 
of Mr. Newberry. It is hard for any 
one to see the logic of this conclus- 
ion except that it be for purely po- 
Mr. and Mrs. John Rouse, of near ( litical purposes.

This agitation will not develop into

source must be looked to in order to 
raise the revenue out of which the 
bonus can be paid.

Farmers and poultrymen can't fill 
the crop of the hen with a miscel- 
laneous collection of feeds and ex- 
pect her to keep the winter egg bas- 
ket full, acccrding to J. H. Martin, 
in charge of poultry work at the 
College of Agriculture. A hen egg is 
made up of four main parts, includ- 
ing the shell, water, yolk and white 
and in order for the hen to maintain 
a high egg production during the 
winter months when eggs are high 
priced, it is necessary that her feed 
contain those elements from which 
these parts can be manufactured, 
Mr. Martin has pointed out to Ken- 
tucky farmers and poultrymen in his 
suggestions on feeding for winter 

"What is lacking in the feed giv- 
en most farm flocks is something to 
produce the white of the egg which 
is largely protein," Mr. Martin 
said. "Experiments show that sixty 
per cent tankage, commonly used in 
hog feeding, buttermilk, sour skim 
milk, or commercial meat scraps, a 
by-product of packing houses, are 
good ones to feed for this purpose. 

"If tankage or meat scrap is fed, 
it will be necessary to feed dry 
mash, 20 per cent of which should 
be the tankage or meat scrap. A 
good mash in which corn meal sup- 
plies additional energy to keep the 
hens warm in winter, may be made 
from 300 pounds of ship stuff, 100 
pounds of com meal and 100 pounds 
of tankage. The dry mash should be 
before the birds at all times in a 

"Material for making the shell 
may be supplied by feeding ground 
limestone or oyster, shells, which 
should be left before the birds at all 
times in a hopper provided for that 

"Since two-thirds of the egg is 
water, success in feeding for winter 
eggs demands that the birds have 
access to plenty of clean, fresh wat- 
er which should be warmed during 
cold weather. 

"Any of the grains found on the 
average farm, such as sweet sor- 
ghums, wheat, corn and oats contain 
yolk forming material 

The so-called Capper-Volstead bill 
for co-operative marketing of farm 
products is one of the most impor- 
tant measures before Congress. It 
not merely has the unanimous sup- 
port of the agricultural group, but 
many consumer's organizations fa- 
vor the idea. 

Some people assert that such leg- 
islation would admit a form of or- 
ganization for handling agricultur- 
al products that would not differ 
theoretically from the control now 
erercised by many trusts and com- 
binations that handle factory mer- 
chandise. But the farmers move- 
ment differs from many monopolistic 
propositions, in that it seeks to make 
a real step toward efficiency, by help 
ing the farmers as a group to do 
their own marketing, rather than hir- 
ing to her people to do it for them. 
The rapid growth of the co-opera- 
tive marketing movement, indicates 
that the farmers find that it give3 
them a larger return for their pro- 

Even if the result is not to de- 
crease prices to the consumer, the 
general public may benefit. Business 
has been held up in the past year, 
by the fact that the farmers, owing 
to low prices of their products, could 
not buy as much factory stuff as they 
used to. But by better methods of 
distribution, they can get a larger 
proportion of the price that the con- 
sumer pays, then the agricultural 
population will be able to buy more 
factory products. This will enable 
mills that have run irregularly dur- 
ing the past year, to operate with 
less interruption. 

The problem is to keep the con- 
sumer's food costs where they are, or 
lower, and to get a larger proportion 
of the price paid to the producer. If 
that can be accomplished by new 
marketing plans, a tremendous pain 
for the entire country will be achiev- 



Thirty six cities in Oklahoma, at 
last accounts, had entered a contest

"Grain mixtures any one of which ■ by the Rotary Club of Shawnee to

horns should receive 12 pounds. In 
either case, one-third of the amount

two-thirds in the evening in a straw 
litter at least 10 to 12 iches deep. 

"Farmers who have sour skim milk 
and buttermilk can use it to advant- 
age to replace the dry mash fed the 
birds. One gallon a day of either is 
sufficient for 80 hens."

The commonest and most generally 
satisfactory material for the walls and 
ceiling of the farm kitchen Is plaster. 
Tire moctor. must, be properly mixed 
and applied to prevent the development 
of cracks and blisters and Injury to 
the surface finish. For the same rea- 
son freshly plastered walls should 
be allowed to dry thoroughly before 
the finishing surface is aoplled. In- 
stead of plaster, some of the composi- 
tion boards that do not warp may be 
used. They may be painted or papered 
and varnished, but before this is done 
nail holes should be filled with plastic 
filler made for the purpose. t Steel 
wall and celling coverings are durable 
when they are kept well painted to 
prevent rusting by steam. Tile and 
vitrified brick, well glazed and 
matched, afford an excellent wall sur- 
face, but they are costly. Metal tiles 
are cheaper and nearly as satisfactory. 
The most desirable finish for walls 
and ceiling is one that will not peel 
or crack and can be easily washed 
or very cheaply and readily renewed. 
A good oil paint gives general satis- 
faction; It can be brushed off with a 
dry wall brush or cleaned more thor- 
oughly with a damp cloth and mild 
soap. Wall paper, unless varnished, 
is very easily loosened by the steam 
from cooking. A wall covering re- 
sembling oilcloth is somewhat more 
expensive, but It Is more durable, and 
has a smooth washable surface. Wa- 
ter must be used very sparingly on a 
wall covering of this kind, for If It 
seeps In the seams the wall covering 
will become loosened. 

The best color or tint for the kitchen 
walls is determined by the location and 
lighting of the room, say household 
specialists of the United States De- 
partment of Agriculture. Light colors 
are preferable for dark rooms because 
they reflect and diffuse the light Into 
darker parts of the room, while dark 
colors absorb a much larger proportion 
of the light. Where the principal ex- 
posure is toward, the south, greenish 
grays are desirable, but If toward the 
north or east, with little opportunity 
for sunshine, the light yellows or 
creams are better. Two shades of 
brown often give a satisfactory finish.

Vegetables and fruits are now con- 
sidered a necessary part of the diet 
of the child. The reasons are many, 
but most of them may be summed up 
by w.. .. ,rftt they furnish material 
needed to form bone and tissue and 
to regulate body processes. The mild 
acids which some of them contain help 
to prevent constipation ; so, too, does 
the cellulose or fiber, especially when 
it Is raw, though its value for this pur- 
pose may have been exaggerated In 
popular literature. 

Green vegetables are also a valuable 
means of Introducing Into the diet 
mineral matters, particularly Iron, In 
a form In which the body can utilize 
them. Even at city prices green vege- 
tables have been shown to be an 
economical source of Iron. Leaf vege- 
tables, like spinach, beet greens, kale, 
etc., have recently been found to con- 
tain some of the growth-promoting 
substances that are found In milk.

Realizing that farm manure con- 
tains much valuable plant food and 
organic matter, Kentucky farmers 
this year are giving increased atten- 
tion to its conservation and careful 
use, according to R. E. Stephenson, 
a member of the soils and crops de- 
partment of the College of Agricul- 
ture. Many farmers are realizing 
that the manure produced on their 
faVms is the cheapest source of plant 
food which they have and as a re- 
sult the material is being hauled and 
spread frequently or stored proper- 
ly instead of being left in the barn-" 
yard where it is exposed to weather 
conditions that leach out the plant 

"Experiments and experiences of 
different farmers show that several 
factors determine the method in 
which manure should be used, "Mr. 
Stephenson eaid. "On heavy soils, 
better results usually are obtained 
when the manure is plowed under 
because it can be mixed better with 
the soil in this way and the decay 
of it will tend to open up soils which 
have a compact texture'. 

"The coarser the material, the 
more advisable it is to turn it under 
rather than to top dress with it. 
Coarse, strawy manure, if not plow- 
ed under in the fall, gives best re- 
sults when turned under early in the 
spring'to allow time for mixing and 
compacting the soil and manure. We 
have found that fine manure gives 
better results for top dressing. 

"On poor land, it is best to use 
part of the manure for top dressing 
clover and grass rather than to ap- 
ply all of it to the corn land. Top 
dressing at least the poorest parts 1 ' 
of the field should help to get a 
good stand o fclover or grass and 
eliminate some of the difficulty which 
Kentucky farmers are having in pro- 
ducing clover crops."

At the close of the year 1921, only 
about 250 owners of dogs had ap-

licenses for the year 1922. 

The County Clerk's office was a 
busy place the latter part of last

year 1922, was the cause of the 

rush. • 

New Year's eve in Burlington was 
very quiet, even the old custom of 
ringing the bells, announcing the de- 
parture of the old and the arrival of 
the new year was abandoned. 

Henry Payne, colored, one of our

best wishes of many friends for a 
long and happy married life. 

According to the records at the 
crfunty clerk's office there were 14 
deaths reported in the Burlington 
precinct for the year 1921. Of this 
number three were children under 
ten years of age, two whites and one 
colored. Out of the eleven other 
deaths only four reached the limited 
time — three score year and ten. The 
average ages of these eleven was 62

SOMEWHERE, somehow, the Ger- 
mans were getting messages 
through from the United States 
to the fatherland. That much was 
certain. Washington knew tt beyond 
the shadow of a doubt, but the way 
In which the messages were trans- 
muted was a mystery — dark and ap- 
pancinij uufattluiuabte. 

This was In the days before Amer- 
ica entered the war, in the days when 
the United States was, theoretically 
at least, a neutral nation. But Von 
Bernstorff, Von Papen and the rest of 
the embassy at Washington were do- 
ing everything they could to further 
their schemes from this side of the

could penetrate the mystery of the

side of the Atlantic, or relayed from ^ to the ^ haf 

the German radio stations, seemed 
fairly obvious. But how? 

"They must be sending the stuff 
through the air," argued the chief of 
the secret service to Talbot, one of 
his best men, "for the simple reason 
that we've closed all their other chan- 
nels." ' f 

"Any Idea as to the code they are 
using?" asked Talbot. 

"None at all, but It's probably con- 
cealed somewhere In the messages 
which they send out to the ships a|| 
sen — press bulletins, stock quotations, 
and the like. We've studied them 
carefully, but hnven't been able to find 
a thing." 

"How about the outburst from 
Nauen every morning?" 

"The only explanation for that 
seems to be that It's an attempt to 
'fog the air' so that ships and other 
towers can't get anything through." 

"Yes, but In that case would the 
Germans send it for un hour early 
every morning? Why not all day long? 
And why that hash of language that 
doesn't mean a thing? If they were 
trying to fog things they'd wireless the 
Bible or Nietzsche or excerpts from 
some other long book Instead of that 
mess of meaningless rot." 

"All right," retorted the chief, "If 
you think there's a clue there, go to it." 

But Tnlbot didn't, begin his inves- 
tigations with a study of the Nauen 
"hast," He made his way nt first to 
the laboratory of Charles E. Apsiir, a

It was to Apgar that he told his trou- 
bles and, when he had finished, the 
e»pert leaned forward and picked up 
something from the tuble In front of 

"See that?" Apgar asked. Talbot 

"Looses like an old-fashioned cylin- 
drical phonograph record," he said. 

"Just what it is," admitted the ex- 
pert, "only you use it in connection 
with a wireless phonograph." 

"A wireless phonograph?" and the 
government operative's voice showed 
that he had never heard of such a 

"Yes, a phonograph attached to the 
receiving end of a radio station. I 
finished working on It a few days ago, 
and I think it's just what you need 
for this Job. It will record and keep 
track of every sound that comes into 
the station, enabling you to 'listen in' 
on messages months after they have 
been sent. With a supply of these 
records and the necessary patience you

Attorney General Daugherty's an- 
nual report states that 427 radical 
propagandists anived in this coun- 
try last i~m~, >%u>-are carrying on, 
their work. 

When some industrial trouble ap- 
pears, you see these radicals coming 
forward and demonstrating the 
class hatred that they have so care- 
fully exploited. They succeed in 
convincing some people that the bus- 
iness system is a cruel and ruthless 
machine, the purpose of which is to 
grind the life out of poor^people, in 
order to make profits for the hog- 
gish rich. 

These propagandists enter old es- 
tablished trade and industrial un- 
ions, and by their persistence and 
volubility gain influence in these 
organizations, and use them for rev- 
olutionary purposes, contrary to the 
desire of the majority of the mem- 

These emissaries never mention 
certain fundamental facts. The first 
of these is that if the income of the 
rich were all dividefl up among the 
mass of the people, it would amount 
to only a small sum for each person. 

The second is, that people of 
wealth, with all their faults, do not 
spend the bulk of their earnings on 
personal luxuries. The bulk of their 
revenues are saved and used for 
improving farms, for creating fac- 
tories, and harnessing water pow- 
ers, for building railroads and mak- 
ing machines. This equipment reduc- 
es the cost of production, and helps 
keep prices down. 

Third, a community either has to 
reward skill, enterprise, and indus- 
try, in which case some people will 
become richer than others, or it must 
treat everybody alike, in which case 
a premium is put on laziness, and 
the community sinks ti the misery 
that exists today in Russia. • 

Nothing is gained by persecuting 
the red propagandists, but some one 
who knows something hould answer 
their silly arguments.

Poultry Show and Sale 

— i — e_u 

By Boone County Poultry Asso- 
ciation at Burlington, Ky., 
Saturday, Jan. 14th. 

This event promises to start the 
onward and upward trend of the 
poultry industry in Boone county. 
The poultry industry in Boone coun- 
ty is falling far behind its possibil- 
ities, since it is close up to the Cn- 

* cinnati market, which assures the 
top price for all our surplus eggs 

r - and poultry. Local pou.ltryraen fail 

* to appreciate their marketing ad- 
vantages, to cite one specific case, 

^during the holidays we were selling 
our turkeys on foot at 48c to 50c 
per pound while counties in Sodth- 
wrn Kentucky were getting but 30c 
per pound. This difference in price 
can easily mean the difference be- 
tween profit and loss. This market 
-applies to all produce from a dozen 
<-of eggs on up. 

A Boone County Poultry Associa- 
tion has been organized for the pur- 
pose of fostering and promoting the 
poultry industry and a committee has 
been appointed to draft by-laws and 
a proposed advertising circular for 
mailing list. Both by-laws and circu- 
lar will be submitted for approva 
^and amendment at the day of the 

The show and sales committee are 
composed of Hubert Conner, J. F. 
Cleek, Mrs. J. Colin Kelly, Mrs. B. 
C Graddy, Chas. Maurer and Judge 
V. E. Riddell. These two committees 
will meet at Burlington Friday at 
10:00 a. m. Jan. 6th. All interested 
breeders are invited to meet with 
them. If you have any pure bred 
male birds, pullets or hens of merit, 
x>f any breed, list them with any of 
the committee. 

Mr. Holmes Martin, Head of -Pauil- 
try Department, Lexington, will as- 
sist us show and sale day. He will 
lecture on breed, type and disqualifi- 
cations of the several breeds. 

Watch next week's issue for prenv

Inquiries from farmers and other 
persons troubled with the common 
brown rat indicate that the time of 
the year has arrived when these 
pests gather up their belongings and 
move from the fields into buildings 
and barns where the supply of food 
is more plentiful and the conditions 
more home-like, according to work- 
ers at the Kentucky Agricultural Ex- 
periment Station. These rodents an- 
nually destroy about $200,000,000 
worth of grain and food products 
in the United States and are worthy 
of considerable attention from far- 
mers, according to workers who 
have recommended barium carbon- 
ate poison as one of the most ef- 
fective means of destroying them. 

However, rats soon learn to avoid 
any particular kind of poisoned bait 
and for that reason should be given 
a varied diet, Harrison Garman, en- 
tomologist at the station has point- 
ed out in the suggestions given. 
Three kinds of bait, and more if pos- 
sible, including a grain, meat or 
cheese and a vegetable give bc-i re- 
sults. It is better to offer them the 
bait without poison first and then al- 
ternate poisoned and unpoisoned 
food until the rodents are killed. One 
part of barium carbonate mixed with 
four parts of bait has been found to 
be effective. If the two cannot be 
mixed, the poison may be sifted over 
the bait and then rubbed in. 

Since barium carbonate is pois- 
; "sua to childre- —j&, domestic ani- 
-mals, .are should be taken in plac- 
ing it about the farm or home. The 
bait should be inspected daily and 
any that is not eaten replaced by 
another kind. 

In their suggestions, the station 
workers have pointed out that de- 
struction of rats is a community 
problem and that even if one's build- 
ings are rat proof, the pests will 
give trouble if permitted to breed in 
the vicinity. 

If informed by an adequate farm 
record, the farmer might discover 
whether or not he can make unpro- 
fitable projects become profitable or 
if it would be better to abandon 
them to devote his energy to those 
which he is able to make successful. 


Fiscal Corut 


The Fiscal Court was in session 
Tuesday. This was the first meeting 
of the new members. 

The court is composed of N. E. 
Ridell, county judge, and Esquires 
J. C. Bedinger, E. J. Aylor, R. H. 
Tanner, Frank M. Walton, B. C. 
Kirtley and C. C. Sleet and Benj. H. 
Riley, County Attorney. 

John Baldon was employed by the 
court to perform the duties of Road 
Engineer for the year 1922 at a 
salary of $1350. 

The jail was ordered painted, as 
directed by the grand jury. 

The County Judge and County At- 
torney were appointed a committee 
to get estimates of putting toilet 
rooms in the court house. This is be- 
ing done at the urgent request of 
several grand juries, and it is an im- 
provement that should be made. 

The court could not comply with 
the request of the Gallatin Fiscal 
Court and join with that court in 
building a bridge across South Fork 
creek — the financies of the county 
would not premit this county to join 
in that improvement. 

There was expended on the roads 
in Boone county during the year 
1921 $93,000.00 of this sum $33,- 
000.00 was work that had been con- 
tracted before 1921, leaving the sum 
of 60,000.00 that had been spent 
on the roads in 1921, and the coun- 
ty owes about $7,300.00. This leoves 
the road fund completely exhaust- 
ed, for the first time in the history 
of Boone county. The road fund for 
1921 was $56,000.00.

An increase of at least one-third 
in the acreage of grasses and leg- 
umes grown in the State and a cor- 
responding decrease in the acreage 
of cultivated crops should result in 
increased profits for Kentucky far- 
mers during the coming year, accord- 
ing to recommendations being made 
by the soils and crops department 
of the College of Agriculture. Much 
of the soil in the 5,000,000 acres 
that are being plowed each year to 
produce cultivated crops is too poor 
to produce paying yields, specialists 
of the department say. 

Of the 5,000,000 acres being 
plowed each year, 4,360,000 acres 
are utilized for cereals, corn being 
the principal one with an acreage of 
3,250,000 acres. On the other hand 
only about 2,000,000 acres of hay 
and forage crops are being grown 
each year. • 

In emphasizing the importance of 
an increased pasture and hay acre- 
age, the specialists have pointed out 
that under average farm conditions 
it is desirable to reduce the amount 
of plowing to a minimum. Each crop 
produced and removed from the field 
removes a large amount of fertility, 
only one-third of which can be re- 
turned to the soil even where the 
best methods of manure conserva- 
tion are practiced. In addition near-

In pointing out to Kentucky far- 
mers that the winter months are the 
ones in which to plan the farm crop 
rotation, specialists at the College 
of Agriculture have emphasized the 
fact that a rotation brings about bet- 
ter distribution of farm labor, saves 
plant food, builds up impoverished 
soils, reduces loss from plant dis- 
eases and insects and produces a 
supply of home-grown feeds. 

"A good rotation should be so 
planned that a legume, such as clov- 
er or soybeans, will be grown from ! ly three-fourths of the plowed land

Lexington, Ky. — Realizing that the 
hog is coming to occupy a m6re im- 
portant place in Kentucky's farming 
industry, the College of Agriculture 
is making plans to give special at- 
tention to practically all phases- of 
pork production in the general pro- 
gram of the tenth annual Farm and 
Home Convention to be held here 
Jan. 31 and Feb. 1, 2 and 3 accord- 
ing to an announcement from the 
college. J. P. Phillips, vice-president 
and -treasurer of the Birmingham 
Packing Co., Birmingham, Ala., will 
be one of the principal speakers on 
the swine program which will be 
held Wednesday, Feb. 1, according 
to the announcement. 

In order to help farmers with 
their hog feeding, breeding and 
slaughtering problems, Mr. Phillips 
will give a demonstration and lecture 
owhich will follow the life of the pig 
from the time he is one month old 
through the feed lot, market, slaugh- 
ter house, the cutting and curing pro- 
cess und finally to the consumer. In 
view ot' the fact that Mr. Phillips 
has had wide experience in the live- 
stork and dressed meat hllitlnCBB. his

(M. E. Small in Carrollton News) 
All nature should prove to fair- 
minded people that Kentucky was 
the Garden in which our forefathers 
was placed. Kentucky is in truth the 
land of flowers. Its waiving blue- 
grass, beautiful hills and fertile 
lands make it the Eden of long ago 
and the Eden of today; a land in 
which Adam and Eve dwelt happily 
until a snake from the East crawled 
across her borders and tempted our 
forefather, and he fell. Cain and 
Abel always drove the cows to pas- 
ture in Ohio, for there is where 
Adam kept his hogs and cows. One 
day Cain and Abel fell out, when 
they had got the cows to past. ire, 
and Cain killed Abel. He was afraid 
to gob ack to Eden and face his 
father and mother so he went down 
into Indiana, which at that time was 
called the Land of Nod. There he 
married a squaw, builded a large 
city, and raised a mighty nation of 
people. Just what went with Adam 
and Eve history fails to inform me. 
But one thing I do know, is that the 
daughters are dressing much the 
same as their "grandma" did.

To see blackberry mes8a *" e c * il e* attention to the de- 
it Christmas will T nd °* the f » rmer a *>r a larger 
snare of the price paid by consum- 
ers for food products. It is univer- 
sally admitted that too much of what 
the consumer pays goes to middle- 

Yet the middlemen could never 
have built up their business if they 
had not rendered a real service. Sup- 
pose an individual fruit dealer were 
to undertake to deal directly with 
the fruit growers. He would have to 
buy the greater part of these fruits 
in states 1000 to 3,000 miles away, 
almost all in small lots. His freight 
and cartage costs would be heavy. 

The middleman comes in at this 
point, and makes a saving by hav- 
ing the friut come in car load ship- 
ments, saving freight and cartage. 
He may be able to deliver small lots 
of fruit around to the various retail 
dealers cheaper than these men 
could buy direct from the producer. 
It is of course possible that a 
group of these dealers could organ- 
ize so as to buy in carload lots, and 
hire truckmen who would receive 
these loads when they come in, and 
distribute them about to the retail- 
ers participating in the deal. Prob- 
ably more of that kind of thing 
could be done .But it involves con- 
siderable machinery. Retailers can 
not tell in advance just how much 
of a given supply they are going to 
be able to sell. It is a great conven- 
ience for them to be able to .tele- 
phone to some near by wholesaler 
and obtain every few days such a 
quantity of stuff as they need. Thus 
they can get along with a smaller 
capital and avoid locking up so much 
money in merchandise. « 

It is proving possible for groups 
of farmers to sell direct to whole- 
salers who are located close to re- 
tail dealers that ue the product. In 
that way one or more profits and 
some handling are frequently saved.

There are two conceptions of the 
fuction of the president in his re- 
lation with Congress. One is that he 
is simply one or two co-ordinate 
branches, each of them wholly inde- 
pendent of the other. It is not his 
business to tell Congress what to do, 
more than to make such recommen- 
dations as seem wise to him. The 
President and ■ Congress are suppos- 
ed to work along their separate lines 
and not to interfere with each oth- 
er. This seems to be largely Presi- 
dent Harding's view. 

The other theory is that the pres- 
ident is the official agent of the coun- 
try with a mandate to give the lead- 
ership that the country needs, and 
to use all his influence to get laws 
enacted that the people demand. This 
was President Wilson's theory. The 
Republicans called him a dictator, 
because he exercised pressure over 
Congress to get needed laws passed. 

The people however care but little 
about punctilios. What they want is 
to get results, and they admire a 
president that has a strong and an 
achieving personality, and can exer- 
cise so powerful an influence over 
Congress that that body will func- 
tion efficiently. 

Congres is almost always torn by 
factional and sectional feeling and 
it fails to get results unless the 
president exercises forceful leader- 
ship. The people do not of course 
want a dictator who stifles debate 
and allows Congress no independent 
judgment. But they do expect such 
leadership on the part of the pres- 
ident that his own party will act with 
some unity and pass a good program 
of legislation. 

This is what President Wibon se- 
cured from the Congresses that were 
under Democratic control, but Pres- 
ident Harding has not so far been 
able thus to harmonize tho repres- 
entatives of his party in Congress. 
As a result they dawdle away their 
time and waste their energy in fac- 
tional quarrels. 

New Year's day was fair and 
bright, but with the mercury hover- 
ing near the 20mark, with a cold 
northwest wind blowing, very few 
people ventured far from' ■ good, 
warm fire.

Mi Boone County National 
Farm Loan Associaton 
Now In Operation. 


"Pj act of Congress Federal Lond 
were chartered and located in 
»ue parts of the United States 
ffljP the purpose of enabling the far- 
men to secure long time loans by 
mortgage on their farms at a reas- 
onable rate of intereest. 

0»e of these Federal Land Banks 
is located in Louisville and serves 
the States of Ohio, Indiana, Ken- 
tucky and Tennessee. This one Land 
Bank at Louisville is making; more 
than a million dollars per month in 
loans to farmers in these four states. 

Before a farmer can secure a 
loaa ' from the Federal Land Bank 
he must first make application to 
and become a member of a Local 
Farm Loan Association, which As- 
sociation handles all details in con- 
nection with the loan for the Fed- 
eral Land Bank. No loans are made 
direct to the farmer by the Federal 
Land Bank but are made to him 
■through the Local Farm Loan As- 
sociation of his county. A local As- 
sociation is formed by not less than 
10 farmers applying for loans of 
not less than $20,000. A charter is 
then granted the Local Association 
and the Association is then in posi- 
tion to receive applications for loans 
from farmers from time to time as 
Oie Federal Land Bank is'able to 
supply the Local Association with 
funds for loanable purposes. 

A local Farm Loan Association 
has been formed to serve the far- 
as the Boone County National Farm 
quarters at Burlington, to be ksown 
as The Boone Countp National Farm 
Loan Association. This Association 
has a President, Vice President, Sec- 
retary-Treasurer, a Board of Di- 
rectors and a Loan Committee. A. 
B, Renaker is the Secretary-Treas- 
urer, and by virtue of his position 
he is the chief executive officer of 
the Federal Loan Bank of Louisville 
for Boone County, wrose duties it is 
to loik after the business of the Fed- 
eral Land Bank in this county. 

No one can belome an officer of 
the Association unless he be o bor- 
rower, except the Secretary-Treas- 
urer who may not be a borrower. 

No one a^u borrow unless he be a 
bona-fide farmer and the money 
must be used for the four following 

1st. To purchase land. 

Sad. To provide buildings and im- 

3rd. To purchase equipment, fer- 
tiliser, lire stock and etc. 

4th. To pay existing debts, incur- 
red for the betterment of the farm. 

Fifteen Charter members, total- 
ing $68,000 in loans signed the or- 
ganisation papers asking for a char- 
ter of the Boone County National 
Farm Loan Associational of this 

The Federal Land Bank does not 
have unlimited funds to loan but 
tries to distribute their lonable funds 
over four states as much as possible. 
The loanable funds are mainly de- 
rived from the Bale to the invest- 
ing public of Farm Loan Bonds 
which are issued against the mort- 
gage loans taken from the farmers 
and if the bonds do not find a ready 
market at all times it causes the Fed- 
eral Land Bank to be short on funds 
until more bonds are sold. It is the 
purpose of Boone county's Local As- 
sociation to be in readiness to place 
loans at any time the Federal Land 
Bank has the available funds for 
this county. 

Loans are mode from $100 to $10,- 
000 to any one party and are made 
from five to 40 years. A $1,000 loan 
is completely liquidated, both as to 
principal and interest in 33 years 
by the payment of $35.00 every six 
months as a part of the $35.00 pay- 
ment is applied on the principal each 
time. Loans may be paid in full or 
in part any time after five years or 
may be paid before five years by a 
small compromise agreement. The 
balance due on a loan paid before 
maturity would be, that amount by 
which the principal has been reduc- 
ed from each semi-annual payment 
as made by the borrower, as shown 
by a printed table in the hands of 
the Secretary. 

Loans are made on the following 
basis: — 50 per cent of the apprais- 
ed value of the land exclusive of im- 
provements, and, 20 per cent of the 
uppraised value of the insurable 

The borrower is required to con- 
, tribute 1 per cent of the amount of 
his loan in the beginning toward the 
expenses of the Ix>cal Association. 
He is alio required to pay for the 
nbatract of title and nucll other 
necessary expenses required in dot 
ing the loan. The borrower in also 
required to take l> per cent Of Kin 
Taan In stock in the Kectnral Land 
tinnk on which he reeehrM annual 

dividend* and the e tee l in i clonic. I

Any Information In 

with ••viii tikg a loan from the Fed 

eral Land Bank will be gladly giv- 
en by A. B. Renaker, Secretary- 
Treasurer, Burlington, Ky. 

It is expected that another allot- 
ment of funds will be made Boone 
county within the next few months 
and the Secretary would appreciate 
knowing* what Tanners- desire to par- 
ticipate in this next allotment of 
funds; their names, addresses, num- 
ber of acres to be mortgaged and 
amount of loan desired. Their re- 
quests will be filed and they will be 
notiled when any funds are avail- 
able to take care of their desired 

This Local Association should 
prove of great benefit to the far- 
mers of Boone county and* assist 
very materially in relieving the 
financial condition which has exist- 
ed for the past two years. 

If the Federal Land Bank can not 
make a farmer as large a loan on 
his farm as he requires .under their 
rules for making loans, there is no 
objection to a bank or an individual 
taking a second mortgage for the 
difference if the bank or individual 
knows there is sufficient margin ov- 
er and above the Federal Land 
Bank's loan to warrant a second 

Loans are now made at 6 per cent 
but as stated above the $35.00 semi- 
annual payment takes care of the in- 
terest and payment every 6 months 
without any additional payments be- 
ing made and the loan is automati- 
cally liquidated in full in 33 years. 

Should the rate of interest be de- 
creased (it can not be increased dur- 
ing the life of the loan) the borrow- 
er has the right to cancel his loan 
after five years and take out a new 
loan at the reduced rate. 

The borrower is required to keep 
all buildings insured and make the 
loss payable to the Federal Land

What Ho Found at the First 

Mooting of Tho Boone 

Fiteol Court 

We found a court composed of 
good earnest men who showed ev- 
ery evidence of wanting to manage 
the affairs of Boone county in a 
safe and economical manner. We 
found some good and efficient offi- 
cers two of whom we would make 
special mention: Our care taker of 
the County Infirmary and our Jailer. 
We felt we would liked to have giv- 
en them more pay as they felt they 
deserved it, but owing to financial 
conditions we have to retrench 
wherever possible. We feel exceed- 
ingly fortunate that we were able 
to secure the services of V*r. John D. 
Baldon as our County Road Engnee**. 
A man of considerable experience 
in road building, and who is able to 
handle the road machinery efficient- 
ly. We will know more about Mr. 
Baldon after one or two years as he 
will have to report to the court and 
to the people of the county. We hope 
and trust that he will be able to 
make a good report. 

These are some of the pleasant 
things we found. But also found 
some unpleasant things, one of the 
chieftest and most important is the 
terrible condition of our roads thru- 
out the county and an almost de- 
pleted road fund, with only about 
funds enough available this year to 
properly ditch the roads, let alone 
to do the repairing that necessarily 
needs to be done. In order for Mr. 
Baldon to succeed under these con- 
ditions he must have the hearty co- 
operation of all the people, and es- 
pecially of the farmers living along 
these roads, and when he comes to 
you in the spring, "you farmers with 
heavy teams and nice red wagons" 
do not turn him down "stating you 
can make more money out of your 
team on the farm" and compell him 
to go down on some back lane and 
get some one with a small team and 
poor equipment and expect him to 
do the impossible. Co-operate and 
do the ditching and hauling^in front 
of your farm as cheaply as possible, 
that we may have more money to 
run the crusher and other road ma- 
chinery and see that we get value 
received for every dollar expended. 
When you are ditching or hauling 
rock on the road in front of your 
farm you are adding to your own 
comfort and advantage as much as 
any other improvement on your 
farm. You are able to do this work 
cheaper than a road crew can do it, 
because you are right at home. Let 
us think co-operation, talk co-oper- i 
ation until we enthuse all with the 
spirit of patriotism, as in the time 
of war when we sent our five min- 
ute men out to educate and to in- 
spire to greater service. 

There may have been some mis- 
takes made, no doubt the present 
court under the same conditions 
would hove made as great or great- 
er. The best means of development 
is to profit by past experience. What 
has been done is done and all the 
criticising and fault finding will not 
remedy it. So let us face the facts 
as they exist today and put our 
shoulders to this mired wheel and 
give a boost and don't stop to hol- 
low. Let our road engineer do all the 
hollowing and we do the lifting and 
boosting and in two years we will 
see a great improvement in our 
roads "more anon."

Business in 1922. 

Conditions in the United States 
today indicate that the year 1922 as 
a whole will be more satisfactory to 
business kcum the year jus\» ended. 
The forecast is that profits will de- 
pend more on economy of opera- 
tion than on expansion of volume. 
With the many favorable factors 
now operating, business men should 
not fear to make plans for the new 
year, but they should plan with care 
and conservatism, and with con- 
stant effort toward reduction of 

Financial improvemnt contiues. 
Progress has been made in reduc- 
tion of excess stocks of manufac- 
tured goods. Accumulations of 'aw 
materials have been reduced. The 
rate of production in the major in- 
dustries has shown little change 
during the closing weeks of the year. 
Losses in some lines have been off- 
set by gains in others, the net re- 
sult being that the gains over the 


There is always more or less wor- 
ry connected with money. Those of 
us who do not have it, worry about 
getting it; and those of us who have 
it, are often put to a great deal of 
worry in hanging on to it. In addi- 
tion to this no Iftue worry isbrouV-- 
on by the desire to make a jitney 
grow where only apenny grew be- 

It esems as if poets and philos- 
ophers had conspired to bring money 
into disrepute, so anxious are they 
to tell us that the mere possession 
of it is a great burden. Thoughts 
like the one to be found in the words 
"The love of money is the root of 
all evil," and others very much like 
this are to be found in all the 
world's great literature. 

In more recent times there has. 
come to us the warning that money 
carries germs. Even an 'innocent 
looking little 10-cent piece, we were 
told, could be the harbinger of 
enough germs to infect a whole fam- 
ily if they were careless in the hand- 
ling of it. In the spreading wings of

Washington, Jan. .*?. — Co-opera- 
tive marketing of farm products 
will constitute a definite part of the 
programme for the N-tional Agri- 
cultural Conference to be called by 
Secretary of Agriculture Henry C. 
Wallace, and probably to be held in 
Washington, January 23, it was 
made known today. 

This phase of the conference pro- 
gramme was discussed with Mr. Wal- 
lace on Tuesday by Clifton Rodes,

iated with the hurley co-operative 
tobacco movement in Kentucky, and 
who is now engaged in similar work 
in West Virginia. 

Potato scab can be eliminated if 
a different plot of ground is plant-

Lexington, Ky. — Poultry housing, 
feeding and management will be 
among the subjects to receive spec- 
ial attention at the tenth annual 
Farm and Home Convention to be 
held at the College of Agriculture 
Jan. 31 and Feb. 1, 2 and 3, ac- 
cording to the tentative program be- 
ing arranged for the evenf. As in 
former years, a part of the general 
program has been set aside for far- 
mers and their wives who are es- 
pecially interested in farm poultry 

Included among the speakers who 
have been scheduled to address the 
I poultrymen are C. L. Manwaring, 
: a commercial poultrymen of Men- 
I tone, Ind., who has made a consist- 
ent yearly prifit from his flock; J. T. 
Wilson, Corydon, whose flock has 
l been one of the ltading ones among 
j the 47 being conducted as demon- 
| strations in the State; J. H. Mar- 
, tin, in charge of poultry work at the 
I college and J. R. Smyth, extension 
I poultryman of the college. 


January is a time when many or- 
, ganizations hold annual meetings, 
and elect their officers for the com- 
l ing year. As a rule the officers of 
; organizations are called upon to do 
| much real work and take some kicks 
! without any pay. But they have the 
| satisfaction of serving the public, 
and they make warm friends by will- 
ingness to give time and effort. 

There are some folks who balk 
the moment it is proposed to put 
them into office in any organization. 
The mere thought of carrying re- 
sponsibility seems impossible 

of insidious germs might find lodg- 
ing, all the ' more securely hidden be- 
cause of the trusting message in- 
scribed between the wing tips. 

Germ experts even went so far 
as to demonstrate that a bank clerk's 
occupation was particularly hazard- 
ous because he handles so much 
money. Paper money is considered 
by germ experts even more danger- 
ous than coin, particularly bills of 
smaller denomination. For obvious 
reasons germs do not care for the 
$50 bills; not so many people get 
their hands on them as on bills of 
smaller denomination. One could al- 
most feel sorry for bank clerks en- 
gaged all day in the hazardous un- 
dertaking of counting money. 

But now this dread has been dis- 
pelled. After exhaustive investiga- 
tion on the subject of money as germ 
carriers two Illinois University ex- 
perts assure us that this danger has 
been greatly exaggerated. It seems 
that the metals from which these 
coins are made act as destroyer of 
bacteria. Germs find money even 
less helpful for the prolongation of 
life than man does. They simply can 
not live on it. 

So we may now load our pockets 
with silver and nickel and copper 
without fear of death. We may pass 
coins over the counter and take 
other coins in change without won- 
dering how many germs we have 
thus set into motion. These experts 
tell us not to carry money in our 
mouth; but that place has never 
appealed to many people as suitable 
for pocketbook purpses. 

This relieves us of the worry con- 
nected with the handling of money. 
The next thing, for some expert to 
do is to tell us how we may be re- 
lieved of our worries in trying to 
get hold of it. — Ex.

How we Americans do love each 
other! You get into ordinary conver- 
sation. All of us are convinced we 
are being robbed by somebody else. 
Our next door neighbor is a good 
fellow personally. But as a business 
man we know he is a pirate. 

The salaried man is suspicious of 
to his employer. He knows his grocer 

is a conspirator. As for the store 
downtown where his wife trades, he 
omes easier j calls it the daylight robbery. So, too, 
the dealer in notions looks darkly 
on the clothier. Both the clothier 
and the notion man blame the job- 
ber and the farmer. The farmer 
is convinced he is the victim of the 
boards of trade. The Wall Street 
broker is certain the country is be-

The most obvious method to pro- 
mote the growth of a city, is to se- 
cure new industries. Innumerable 
business organizations have worked 
on that proposition, and have had a 
good many disappointments. After 
a new industry has been secured by 
special favors or by stock subscrip- 
tions, it does not always prove per- 
manent. But in spite of all adverse 
possibilities, many businesa organ- 
izations have succeeded in locating 
new industries in a permanent way 
and in helping existing ones to do 
men business. The thing can be 
done, if handled right.

It is with the deepest sorrow and 
regret that I write these few lines 
of the death of our friend and neigh- 
bor, Robert Hamilton, son of J. P. 
and Eliza Hamilton, who was bd_. 
• Dec. 15th, 1892, died Jan. 2, 1922* 
age 29 years and 17 days, while 
shoveling gravel for Geo. Baker at 
East Bend, the gravel bank ga%'e way 
and covered him up. Lennie Hub- 
bard and Henry Black were with 
him, and it took fifty minutes to 
get him out. He leaves a mother, 
father one sister and one-half broth- 
er to mourn his death. Robert was a 
good, kind boy, and every one liked 
him, he was willing anj able to 
lend a helping hand where ever 
needed. It is sad that on« io young 
in life should be taken, but his 
earthly career is ended and he is at in Heven. No more shall he 
answer to the roll ca'l ai: his home 
but will respond to the roll call at 
his Heavenly home. Weep not dear 
ones as those that have no hope, he 
has gone from us but we have that 
blessed assurance of meeting again 
on that bright shore where there are 
no more partings and heartaches. 
Funeral services were held at the 
Hughes Chapel Wednesday at 11 a. 
m. f by Rev. Baker, who rendered a 
beautiful and touching tribute to the 
memory of the dead, after which the 
remains were laid to rest in the 
cemetery there to await the resur- 
rection morn. The floral pieces were 
beautiful and expressed the sym- 
pathy and love of his friends. 
The hour* will longer be no doubt, 

The day* may run for years, 
But do not extend the time with 

Nor lend your eyet to tear*.

midnight of which quite a number of 
reatives and friends partook. 

One of the greatest successes in 
entertainments was given Christmas 
eve by the young people and chil- 
dren of the Pt. Pleasant Sunday 
school. The children had recitations 
and dialogues, which were given and 
equally well received by the au- 
dience. The young people presented 
the play "Mrs. Bailey's Boarders." 
Each part was well taken and real- 
ly shows the taent that these young 
people have. After the last song was 
sung Santa Clau s made his appear-

welcome by the children and even 
some of the grown-ups. Much credit 
is due the eaders for the successful 
way in which the entertainment was

The consumer who is struggling 
to make rather scanty ends meet, is 
pleased to have the sympathy of 
Attorney General Daugherty who 
has ordered an investigation to be 
made of the prices of foods, fuel, 
shoes and clothing. These costs of 
these staples have been cussed and 
discussed and investigated and in- 
terrogated and inquired into. The 
consumer has about reached the 
point where he feels that these ef- 
forts add to the eosts of government 
which he has to pay, without accom- 
plishing anything. 

Meanwhile the National Associa- 
tion of Retail CW^ier^, has issued a 
statement deity ii.£ that retail deal- 
ers are making big profits. There is 
no field where it is so difficult to 
raise prices by combination as retail 
trade, since there are always so 
many people trying to break into 
the retail game and selling a little 
below the market in order to get 
a foothold. 

The efforts of „he government to 
reduce prices by law have not been 
very successful to date. A few small 
profiteers have felt the heavy hand 
of the law, which has been useful 
so far as it went. It has expressed 
the public demand for lower costs 
of living, and has helped convince 
many business men that it pays to 
conduct trade on the narrowest pos- 
sible margin. 

In the long run prices can not be 
pushed down by outside pressure, 
but must be regulated by 'competi- 
tion and by efficient methods of do- 
ing business. If people charge too 
high f„. '. .„ ^,"1he" v public ahouftl 
do business with those whose ideas 
arc more reasonable. 

In some lines combinations exist 
among producers that tend to hold 
prices. The business community 
ought not to permit these abuses to 
continue. If certain men insist on 
combining to hold up prices, cham- 
bers of commerce ad other business 
organizations ought to start compe- 
titive projects to serve the public at 
fair rates.

What is fog? The average person 
would say it is low clouds resting on 
the earth's surface. This is quite true, 
but the question is usually dropped 
at this point and little thought is 
given to why these clouds form so 
much nearer the ground at some 
times than at others. 

As the Weather Bureau explains it 
both fog and clouds are formed when 
condensation of moisture takes place 
in the atmosphere. Fog is composed 
of minute particles of visible vapor. 
They were once believed to be hol- 
low spheres, but science now declares 
that each individual drop is a solid 
body of water enveloping a particle 
of dust in the air and supported by 
the upward tendency of air currents 
and the resistance of atmosphere to 
the falling f minute spherical part- 
cles. The diameter of the smallest 
visible particles of fog has been est- 
imated to be 1,180 of an inch. 

Fogs are seldom more than 1,500 
feet in depth, and sometimes they 
only extend twenty or thirty feet 
above the ground. They have been 
known to form in a stratum to only 
the height of a man. 

In accordance with the conditions 
under which fogs develop thep are 
divided into two general clashes, "ra- 
diation fogs" and "advectiou fogs." 
The former kind, which may alos be 
designated as "land fogs" and "sum- 
mer fogs," are likely to occur along 
streams and rivers and in mountain 
valleys during any clear, still night 
in summer and fall. In such regions 
during a warm, calm day consider- 
able water becomes evaporated into 
the lower atmosphere, where, if the 
weather remains calm, a large por- 
tion of it lingers after sundown. 
This moist air, together with the heat 
from the earth at night is cooled rap- 
idly by radiation into the clear sky, 
and they often cool to a degree below 
the dew point, which condenses the 
moisture into a visible vapor known 
as fog. Like dew, "radiation fogs" 
will not form on cloudy or windy 
nights. Such fogs may continue well 
after daybreak, but will vanish when 
the sun's heat induces evaporation 
and a discontinuance of radiation. 


A movement called the "Workers' 
Party of America" held a conven- 
| tion at New York the other day, and 
I formed a new political organiza- 
tion. It was nrr., A.need that the 
! new association is dedicated to the 
"overthrow of the present govern- 
ment." Some people might consid- 
er that the meeting was seditious. 
But no one will bother to interfere 
with these noisy shouters. 

This organization announces that 
it proposes to establish the .'Amer- 
ican workers' republic." But the 
present government is a workers' 
republic. Every worker can have his 
own voice in the management there- 
of. Most Americans are workers 
anyway, and the prmcipal permanent 
leisure class is the one that loafs on 
park benches and hops freight cars. 
If any section of the workers feel 
that their interests are not fully pro- 
tected by the present government, 
they have opportunity to redress 
their grievances. Their votes count 
just as much as those of any other 
citizen. The American people as a 
whole, are keenly sympathetic with 
the "under dog." If it can be shown 
that any element have not had a 
fair chance under the present system 
our people will go the limit to give 
them a better opportunity. 

In so far as the present govern- 
ment fails to provide comfortable 
conditions for everybody, the trou- 
ble is not with the government but 
with the voters who elect public of- 
ficials. There is a tendency for the 
people to elect smooth talkers and 
,~*„ ~ -i1 ^ " -apacity as "mixers," 
but who are not capable of giving 
efficient business administration. 
When such men get into power, 
many things go wrong. 

But changing the form of govern- 
ment would not help that tendency 
at all. It would erist even more in 
the kind of government these agita- 
tors wish to establish. 

Government will not be perfect 
until human nature is all wise and 
all good, but American principles 
have done more for human happi- 
ness than any other system on earth. 


An opposition party in Con- 
gress is always under peculiar temp- 
tations. It is easy and natural for it 
to take an attitude of obstruction. 
It knows that it will get little credit 
for good legislation that may be 
passed.. Hence opposition parties 
frequently adopt an attitude of ex- 
treme criticism and) unwillingness 
to co-operate. 

The Democrats in Congress have 
had a powerful temptation to fol- 
low along that line, particularly since 
the arament conference met. They 
remember only too well the factious 
and bitter opposition encountered 
by President Wilson when he under- 
took to negotiate a treaty of peace. 
They saw the tendency to quibble 
over trifling issues which wrecked 
the settlement that proved satisfac- 
tory to all the other powers at Ver- 

It would have been human nature 
for the Democrots to hove turned 
aroound and pursued a similar 
course when the responsibility came 
on a Republican president. When it 
comes to ratifying the new treaties, 
the same spirit of refusing to co-op- 
erate with the rest of the world, 
would lead to opposition to the 
Harding agreements. 

The Democrats, however, have 
been far sighted enough to see that 
this would be poor politics, not to 
speak of its being a low order of 
patriotism. They will not use the 
same methods of partisan opposi- 
tion that the Republicans resorted 
to in 1919. They have not thrown a 
single obstacle in the way of the 
Washington conference, and most of 
them will vote to ratify the treaties 
negotiated by their opponents. 

For the time being they may seem 
to gain nothing as a party from 
this course. But the people at large 
will not overlook their patriotic and 
high minded course at this juncture 
and will be grateful for their abil- 
ity to sink partisan differences for 
the common sense cause of peace. 


The rhildren of any community 
form a tremendous reserve of ener- 
gy, that can be utilized. For in- 
stance, the Martinez, California, 
Chamber of Commerce recently made 
large use of child enthusiasm, in a 
movement to clean up the town and 
get rid of fences. The city was di- 
vided into blocks, with three chair- 
men to each district, consisting of 
a man, a woman and a Boy Scout. 
The charmen selected two captains 
for each district, one a boy and one 
a girl. Each of the block captain.!. 

Then the block captains distribut- 
ed literature to ev°ryone in their 
respective districts, urging them 'to 
trim shrubbery, burn the grata on 
vacant lots, clean up rubbish, tear 
down or whitewash old fences, etc. 
A motion picture theater parly was 
given to 800 rhildren, the tickets 
being given only to those who had 
cleaned up their home*, This cam

Highway Educational Work Extending 

Its Scope in Various Sections of 

the Country. 

The extent to which the people of 
the United States are committing 
themselves to a definite policy of high- 
way development Is shown by reports 
reaching the federal highway council 
from all sections of the country. 

in Tne face of high cost for both ma- 
terials and labor, and the fact that In 
some states construction programs 
must he altered somewhat to "meet ex- 
isting labor and material conditions, 
there Is no tendency upon the part of 
the people to slow down In their plans 
to place thp nation's highways upon a 
higher; plane in the country's transpor- 
tation system. Tersely stated, "they 
nre sold to the heels" on the proposi- 
tion to construct highways that will 
release rather than restrict traffic, and 
they are dismissing labor and material 
problems with curt instructions to 
their -official servants that it le up to 
them to deliver the roads. 

A curious fact In connection with 
construction problems at the present 
moment Is that the building of roads is 
seriously hindered by the same evil 
which they are designed to remove — 

J t. . asportation. AccordlD* . 
authoritative Information, production 
Is halted to a greater degree by inade- 
quate transportation facilities than by 
labor shortage. At least this Is true, It 
Is claimed, in the production of ma- 
terials for road building. 

Highway officials — state and county 
as well as national — are facing their 
duties with patience and tact, and out 
of a maze of trying situations con- 
struction Is going ahead at a fairly sat- 
isfactory rate. But as Paul D. Sar-

Good Roads Enable Farmer to Market 
Hia Crops With Least Possible Ex- 

and president of the American Associ- 
ation^ Highway Officials, pointed out 
In a meeting at Philadelphia recently, 
when the people finally decide to au- 
thorize the development of any particu- 
lar road project, they are prone to ex- 
pect the work done almost overnight 


Enable Farmers to Get Their Differ- 
ent Crops to Market at Least 
Possible Expense. 

"Farmers are business men and In 
order to conduct their farms in a 
businesslike way and cope with other 
business men in the state they must 
devise ways and means of reducing 
the expenses of operation," said L E. 
Birdsall In submitting a resolution to 
the Illinois Agricultural association. 
He added : "In no way can the ex- 
pense of farming be reduced as com- 
pletely as by securing good roads run- 
ning by the farms which will enable 
the delivery of crops to market with 
the least possible expense." 

That Is good sound sense and com- 
ing from a practical farmer It shows 
that farmers are keenly alive to the 
need and value of Improved roads. 
Mr. Birdsall lays further emphasis on 
the need of selecting the most com- 
petent men for highway officials so 
that the best talent may be available 
for road building and repairing.

of Lonsome Pines" 


Goeburn, Va. 
Jan. 2nd, 1922. 
Mr. N. E. Riddell, 
Burlington, Ky., 

Dear Editor: — I am taking this op- 
portunity to tell you how I appre- 
ciate the weekly visits of the dear 
old "Boone County Recorder" which 
makes me so happy every time it 
comes. Though I have been busy all 
the time that I have been here, each 
Friday when the Recorder gets here, 
I always have time to see what is go- 
ing on in my home county. Some- 
how the Recorder looks different to 
me from any newspaper. I suppose 
it is because on its pages, I see so 
many names of people, and places 
which I am so familiar with, Flicker- 
town, for instance, the place where 
I had my first experience as a preach- 
er, of course, when I think of my ex- 
perience there, I think of Charles 
Hensley, Henry Smith and all those 
pood people there, that I would like 
to see again. Then just a few days 
ago I saw the name of Cousin Mart 
it causes me to think of those days 
that I spent with him climbing the 
Gunpowder hills looking for a fresh 
track of a skunk or a coon, and some 
times we succeeded in bringing in 
his felt. Now just a few words to 
a few of the people there, whom 
1 shall never forget. Often I think 
of you all and would be so glad to 
see you, especially my dear old moth- 
er and father and also Cousin Jim 
and Viola Ryle. When we review the 
past vears, my wife and I are very 
triaiiKiul for the sweet fellowsiup of 
the Ryle home and we both thank 
them because we know that it was to 
a great extent, through their help 
and self-sacrifice that we were able 
to receive our dpilomas from the 
Southern Baptist Theological Semin- 
ary and the Womans Missionary Un- 
ion Training School last May. 

Well it has been nearly five months 
, now since we took our last look at 
Kentucky, but every day since we 
came here we have been si happy and 
our work has been a real joy lo ns. 
We have great people here to work 
"wit, and they do every thing possible 
to make us feel at home. Just a few 
nights after we moved into the pa*. 
torium, I went over to the church 
for prayer meeting and everybody 
was late. Finally someone called me 
and I went to the house, and to r.ur 
surprise the crowd was standing in 
the yard and I unlocked the door and 
they nearly filled the hall and the cel- 
lar with good things to eat, and I sup- 
pose that accounts fir me gaining 1 1 
pounds since we came to Virginia. 

Now just a few words about the 
country here. This is a very beautiful 
country, iur town is builded around 
the base of three mountains, in what 
is known as Clinch Valley. This coun- 
ty is the richest county in Virginia. 
Ths is because of the vast amount of 
coal here. Beginning at the top of the 
mountains, there are four or five 
veins of coal, one right under the 
other, and so far the greatest amount 
and biggest veins have not been 
reached. There is one mine near 
here called the Toms Creek mine, 
and when the company is doing full 
work, it employs thirty five hundred 
men, at which tiime about ninety car 
loads of coal are sent out a day, be- 
sides the coke that is burned at this 
<">ne mine. 

This is practically a new country 
and is not fully developed. We 
have now about eleven thousand 
people living within a two mile rad- 
ius and people still moving in, and 
many new buildings going up. We 
have one railroad here and the sec- 
ond one nearly completed. It is 
very safe traveling here because the 
railroads are so crooked that one can 
•be seated in the coach and watch 
the engine most of the time, as it 
winds around between the moun- 
tains. However they get there just 
the same with thousands of tons of 
coal. Now a few words about the 
Baptists here. I am certain that my 
people will want to know something 
about them. They are real genuine 
Baptists, some of them born and 
reared here, many others from 
North Carolina, South Carolina and 
the other Southern States. We have 
only two denomination shere. Bap- 
tist and Methodist. There was a time 
when Baptists were not allowed here 
and what few happened to stay 
were forced to march at the orders 
of others but now Baptists are very 
numerous, and are at the head of 
most of the business places, of this 
town, so now they are ready to call 
us dear brethren. 

The church here is very much 
alive an denthusiastic. The building 
and equipment is splendid and we 
are vrey proud of our well organiz- 
ed and graded Sunday school, with 
all our corps of fine teachers and of- 
ficers in the various departments. 
We have all five organizations which 
make up the graded W. M. L. and 
we i' J have three B. Y. U.'s Junior, 
iin.vrmediate and Senior. We have a 
number of very capable leaders in 
the work and others are training 
themselves for the work. Our people 
are cultured and good, but outside 
the church, there are so many lost 
and living in depredation and sin. 
Moonshine Mows freely and all its 
effects are seen.

or the town. There is m> much \g

One of the things that every woman

one of these anil with blouses for dress

Jnst a few words about our trav- 
els here in the mountains. Mrs. 
Smith has gone to a number of plac- 
es to speak to the ladies and the 
house is almost always crowded with 
women arf 

learn. I have gone to a number of 
mountain points to preach and have 
always been welcomed by a large 
crowd of mountain people who are 
anxious to know more about Jesus. 
It makes me feel sad sometimes to 
hear the strange noises that they 
make, sometimes they can be heard 
for a mile or more. Then sometimes 
my heart is filled with joy because 
the Lord has lead me to a people 
who are so eager to learn and to 
those who are so appreciative of 
what we try to do for them. 

I made a trip to High Knob one 
day, which is about twelve miles 
from our town. We started up the 
mountain about six o'clock in the 
morning and about nine o'clock we 
reached the top, there was no road, 
just a winding trail between the 
rocks and large Chestnut trees. 
When we reached the top, all the 
rest of the country seemed to me, 
as we looked out over it, to be small 
sweet potato hills, just as far as we 
could see. We could see Cumber- 
land Gap and the vine clad hills of 
Old Kentucky. Then we could see 
smoke rising in nearly every direc- 
tion from the mining camps, and as 
far as I know some smoke might 
have been from moonshine stills as 
they are very numerous in some sec- 
tions here, but it seems that in a 
short time they will not be so plent- 
iful, for every few days our good 
and daring officers bring them in 
and chop them up. From the top of 
the high mountain our party told me 
that we could see seven states, but 
to me they all looked alike. 

I have made several trips around 
the mountain roads in a car, but I 
was not at the wheel and I do not 
expect to be because it takes an ex- 
pere here. I made one trip to Big 
Stone Gap, which I enjoyed very 
much, the scenery was perfectly 
beautiful. We passed over part of 
the road where John Fox, Jr., got 
the setting for his famous story"The 
Trail of the Lonesome Pine." About 
nine o'clock in the morning we reach 
ed the top of a mountain overlook- 
ing beautiful Powells Valley, which 
is the most picturesque sight of na- 
ture that I ever looked upon. Big 
Stone Gap i s a beautiful mountain 
town surrounded by mountains. It 
is the Virginia home of John Fox, 
Jr. I visited his home, which is a very 
picturesque place, a low flat house, 
partly covered with vines, and sur- 
rounded by pine and other trees. As 
we were returning to Coeburn in 
the afternoon, I said to myself, no 
wonder John Fox, Jr., could write 
such a story. Then again I said to 
myself that perhaps another Ken- 
tuckian, some time will attempt to 
write a story and get the setting 
frim the beautiful mountains of Ken- 
tucky or Virginia. 

Wishing all well in Boone coun- 
ty. I will continue every week to 
look for the news through the Boone 
County Recorder.

Methods for Making Bread. 

There are two genernl methods for 
making bread, one known as the 
straight-dough process and the other 
as the sponge process. 

In the straight-dough process all the 
Ingredients are mixed at one time and 
the dough is made of the proper con- 
sistency before rising. Either com- 
pressed or liquid yeast may be 'used 
for this, but not dry yeast. 

In the spouge process only half the 
total amount of flour is used at first, 
with all or nearly all the liquid, the 
yeast, and frequently the salt and the

sugar. T'ompressed. dry, or liquid 
yeast may be used for this. This mix- 
ture is similar to a soft batter, and 
after the first rising the remainder of 
the flour, the shortening, and any oth- 
er desired ingredients are added. It is 
then kneaded until of the proper con- 
sistency and smoothness. 

Decreasing Time of Process. 

Hie sponge process usually requires 
less yeast than tbe straight-dough 
method, because of the softer con- 
sistency of the mixture which favors 
tbe growth of the yeast, and also be- 
cause it Is generally given more time. 
However, by using larger or smaller 
amounts of yeast one may shorten or 
lengthen the time required for rising. 
In a similar way the straight-dough 
process may be shortened or length- 
ened by increasing or decreasing the 
amount of yeast used. Great care 
should be taken with a sponge or 
dough which stands a long time — as 
the overnight straight dough or the 
overnight sponge — to keep It much 
cooler than when the quicker methods 
are used, since the former have a 
greater chance of becoming sour. 

Tha> following bread recipes are giv- 
en by specialists of the United States 
Department of" Agriculture : 

Short Procaaa, or Straight Dough. 

♦ cupfuis (1 quart) lukewarm liquid. 

4 teaspoon ful» of salt. 

2 tablespoonfuls of sugar. 

2 tableapoonfuls of shortening. If de- 

1 or I cakes of compressed yeast, or 
half to 1 cupful of liquid yeast 

t to 4 quarts of sifted flour. 

If milk Is used It should be scalned 
and cooled until lukewarm before us- 
ing. When liquid yeast Is used its 
volume must be deducted from the 
other liquid culled for. This makes 
four loaves. 

Soften the yeast with a small 
amount of the lukewarm liquid. To 
the rest of the liquid add the salt, 
sugar and shortening. Add the yeast 
and mix all together. Measure the 
•Ifted flour Into a howl and blend with 
llils the liquid. If too soft to kneail, 
add more Hour until of the proper 

consistency, Knead fee five to (en

peratnre of 80 to T?8 degrees F. Let 
rise until about double its original 
bulk or until a slight touch of the 
linger leaves mi Impression. This 
should happen within one to two hours 
if the yeast is in good condition and 
the temperature right. Knead ami set 
aside again in the same warm place 
until it doubles Us bulk. Then knead 
and shape Into loaves ; let rise again 
until double In bulk and bake. 

Overnight Sponge Method. 

4 eupfula (1 quart) of lukewarm liquid 
(half cupful leas If potato Is used). 

4 teaspoonfula of salt. 

I tablespoonfuls of sugar. 

1 tablespoonfulB of shortening- (If de- 

1 cake of yeast (dry or compressed), or 
half cupful of liquid "-fast. 

i cupful mashed potato (if desired). 

> to 4 quarts of sifted flour. 

If dry yeast Is used, soak it for 20 
minutes to one hour before mixing the 
spouge and mix the sponge earlier 
than if compressed or liquid yeast la 
used. When liquid yeast Is used. Its 
volume must be deducted from tbe 
other liquid called for. 

Blend the yeast with a little of the 
lukewarm liquid. If potato Is used 
add to It the salt, then the yeast mix- 
ture, the remainder of the liquid, and 
finally one-half of the flour. Beat until 
smooth, cover, and set to rise where 
It will be at 60 to 70 degrees F. 

In the morning, break up the sponge, 
add sugar, the melted shortening (if 
used), and enough flour to make a 
dough of the proper consistency. 
Knead until the dough is smooth, elas- 
tic and no longer sticks to the bowl or 
fingers. Cover and set to rise until 
at least double In hulk. Knead down, 
mold into loaves, let rise again until 
double in bulk and bake.

(Prepared by the United States Depart- 
ment of Agriculture.) 

Some fermeuted and salted vege- 
tables like cucumbers, are eaten raw; 
others, like cabbage (sauerkraut), are 
usually cooked. In general the fer- 
mented and salted products may be 
prepared for the table in much the 
same manner as the fresh vegetables, 
except that before being cooked they 
should be soaked in fresh water for 
*-everal hours or longer. If necessary, 
to remove the salt, the water being 
changed several t.lmes. k In some cases 
It may be necessary also to change 
the water once or twice during the 
boiling of tbe waited vegetables. In 
this one si.oultl be guided by taste. 

Te prepare the fermented or salted 
corn for the table, rinse it thoroughly 
and soak for four or the hours, chang- 
ing the water frequently. In general 
It will be found more satisfactory to 
remove practically all the a. oi flavor 
from the fermented corn. After soak- 
ing, place the corn in cold water and 
bring to boil, pour off the water, add 
fresh cold water, bring to boil again, 
and cook until tender. The rooked

Proper Town Planning. 
Scientific town planning takes Into 
consideration the direction of streets 
and orientation of houses from s san- 
itary standpoint. There has been n 
tendency to make streets mn north 
and south and east and west, but In a 
paper to the Royal Astronomical so- 
ciety of Canada, H. L. Seymour late- 
ly showed that they should run north- 
east and southwest and northwest and 
southeast. Houses correspondingly 
placed have sunshine in all rooms in- 
stead of having it cut off from north- 
erly walls for more than one-half of 
the time. Also houses shall be so 
placed and of such height as to shade 
others as little as possible.

Whatever else may be thought of 
the new revenue act, it will not be 
acclaimed for its simplicity. Instead, 
the increased complexity of the 
methods provided for determining 
taxable net income will add to the 
criticism of the law which its dis- 
appointing rate schedules have called 
forth. Although these refinements 
were no doubt made in the interest 
of justice, the intricate computations 
necessary in applying the involved 
language of the act leave open the 
question of the wisdom of many of 
the presumptive improvements. 

Changes of rates of the individ- 
ual income tax are almost negligi- 
ble. Upon income of the year just 
closed there is no change, while up- 
on income of succeeding years the 
change in rates is insignificant un- 
til income exceeds $100,000. How- 
ever, a pergonal exemption of $2,- 
500 is franted to married persons 
or heads of families having incomes 
not over $5,000, and the exemption 
for each der l\v\ ijtejin creased to 
$400 in all cases. 

The good, tight little city of Ma-

In addition to electing a Democratic 
Mayor by a good round majority in

Jackson Day banquet which, accord-

Chairman Rouse of the Democratic 
Congressional Committee had a call 
*or a good speaker from the House 
to add luster to the occasion and he 
selected Judge Barkley, of Ky. who 
is not only one of the best of after- 
dinner speakers, but is a power in 
debate in Congress, where he is 
serving his fifth term and is the 
ranking Democrat on the highly-im- 
portant Committee on Interstate 
and Foreign Commerce, than which 
no committee has grown faster in 
importance. If the expected Demo- 
cratic Congress is elected next No- 
vember, Judge Barkley will head 
that Committee. 


(Hodgenvilte Herald.) 
Walter Ewing brought a piece of 
caftbage in a bottle to our office and 
in the cabbage is three small snakes 
or worms nearly the same color as 
the cabbage. A few years ago the

wide attention. Whether or not they 
are poison we do not know, but not 
being especially fond of any kind 
of snakes as a diet, we will not sam-

According to reports tax payers 
of Kentucky paid in 1921 to the 
State $2,180,209.77 more than they 
did in 1917. They paid to the coun- 
ties $4,304,541.59 more, and the 
county taxes do not include coun- 
ty school taxes. The school taxes 
probably will make the increase in 
county taxes since 1917 at least 
three times as great as the increase 
in State taxes. The increase in 
State revenue in Boone county was 
$15,746.38, while the increase - in 
county revenue was $39,264.59. 

Kentucky grew in 1919, when war 
prices inspired the plowman, 82,- 
500,000 bushels of corn. In 1921, 
despite deflation and depression of 
spirits, Kentucky farmers planted, 
plowed and harvested 82,150,000 
bushels of corn. Kentucky corn sold 
for more than three times as much 
in 1919 as it was worth when the 
1921 crop was made. And everyone 
foresaw the difference between the 
market value in 1921 and in 1919. 

There is complaint, on good 
grounds, from the Commissioner of 
Agriculture, that there are too many 
unfilled acres and ungrazed pastures 
in Kentucky. Notwithstanding th«j 
fact Kentucky's $18,000,000 in 1900 
has expended to $50,000,000 in 1921, | 
and the further and material expan 
sion of the money value of the 
State's crop is as certain as any 
event of the future can be. 

Tobacco, wortih $60,000,000 in 
1921 will, under co-operative mar- 
keting, return to the high figures of 
1919 by reason of a stabilized mar- 
ket which will increase production. 
Should it retain its present pre- 
eminence, as the first crop of the 
State in market value, it would do 
so without curtailing to any great 
extent the acreage of other crops. 

The striking figures in the Federal 
Government's report of Kentucky 
< rops is that in 1921 Kentucky pro- 
Haced almost as much com as was 
produced in 1919. Evidently corn 
Prowers in this State are not shut- 
ting down their agricultural plants 
to the extent that the corn plant is 
not coming up over areas as wide as

According to some of the old- 
timers who have divers ways of prog-

1921-1922 will be a bright, warm 
one. Here is the way they hand out 
their dope: The first three days of 
December, before winter, predicts 
the weather for the next three 
months. If you noticed, the weather

a deal of hard labor. She brought 
along her old clay pipe, and, while 
waiting her turn to go into the Gov- 
ernor's office, would fill it up with 
long green tobacco, light it and 
take a quiet smoke to while away

THERE was but little doubt in the 
mind of Thomaa Byrnes, superin- 
tendent of police In New York 
city, that Louis Hanier had been mur- 
dered for the sake of the money that 
he was carrying with him at the time. 
The little* Frenchman had been the 
proprietor of a v~— ■ -*d, having a 
fear of the banks of America, had the 
habit of carrying hundreds of dollars 
in his wallet until the opportunity pre- 
sented Itself of purchasing an inter- 
national money order. 

One morning he was fonnd dead In 
the vestibule of his home, a .38 cali- 
ber bullet through his heart, and his 
pocketbook missing, 

That was all Byrnes had to work 
upon, for there were no indications 
whatever of the persons who had com 
mltted the crime. The dispatch with 
which the matter had been handled, 
appeared to point to a professional 
criminal, so Byrnes gave orders that 
all the pawn**"— .n-New York were 
to be closely watched, and reports 
made to him of the pawning of any 
.38 caliber revolvers. 

Investigation of the dozen or more 
.3S's pawned during the week which 
followed the Hanier shooting, showed 
that all but one of them had been 
pledged by persons who very evident- 
ly had no connection with the murder. 
The single exception was one Michael 
McOloin, whom the pawnbroker In 
question Identified by means of his 
photograph In the Rouges' gallery 
McGloin's gun had been pawned on 
the morning after the murder, and, 
while the police had little difficulty 
in locating the man himself, there was 
not a shred of evidence to connect 
htm with the Hanier case, beyond the 
fact that he had been absent from 
home on the night of the shooting In 
the company of four of his boon com 

Quietly, and without allowing a 
word of his intentions to leak out, 
Byrnes rounded up the quintet one 
at a time, none of them knowing that 
the others were being arrested. Each 
of them was lodged In a cell by him- 
self and questioned closely as to his 
actions nnd his whereabouts at the 
time of the murder. In spite of the 
fact that Byrnes had definite infor- 
nintion that the five men had been to- 
gether, each of them told a different 
story, and each claimed to have been 
alone, at a considerable distance from 
tin' Hanier house. 

"It's no use, Inspector," said one of 
the policemen who had been working 
on the case about a week after the 
live men had been picked up, "you 
can't get a thing out of 'em. They 
know, all right, but you can't convict 
any of 'em without a confession — and 
we've tried everything, Including the 
'third degree.'" ' 

"Very well," said Byrnes quietly, 
"we'll have to try the fourth degree." 

"Fourth degree? What's that?" 

"Just a little way of getting at the 
truth when a man wants to hold out 
on you," was Byrnes' answer. "You 
think there's no doubt that McUloin'a 
the man? Have him brought to this 
ofllce tomorrow morning, promptly at 
ten o'clock." 

At the time specified, McGloin, sul- 
len and resentful at what he claimed 
was an illegal detention, walked Into 
the Inspector's office, alone. Had he 
been Interested in such details, he 
might have noted that Byrnes was 
seated so that he could watch the 
window of his offlTjj which looked out 
upon a corridor, and also keep an eye 
upon the occupant of the only chair 
In the room, bolted to the floor in 
front of the desk. But McUloin wasn't 
worrying about such trifles. He was 
there to demand his release, and he 
told the Inspector so In no measured 

"That's all right, McGloln," replied 
Byrnes. "Sit down a minute. I've 
several things to attend to," and he 
motioned to the chair, placed so that 
It too commanded a view of the cor- 
ridor window. A moment later the 
office floor opened and a man came In

Squaw Dish. — Place 
one-half pound of thinly- 
sliced strips of bacon in 
a hot frying pan and cook 
until the bacon is crisp 
and brown, occasionally 
pouring off the fat and 
turning frequently to keep the bacon 
from burning. Drain from the fat, 
leaving four tablespoon fills of fat in 
the pan: add one-half cupful of hot 
milk nnd one cupful of corn ; cook un- 
til soft ; if cooked corn Is used it will 
not need as long cooking. Season with, 
salt, pepper and paprika and serve on 
a hot platter around the bacon. 

Prune Pudding.— Take one cupful of 
ground uncooked prunes, one-half cup- 
ful of sugar and when well mixed add 
two well beaten eggs, three cupfuls of 
milk, one-hnlf teaspoonful of orange 
extract and one thick slice of buttered 
bread. Cut the bread In small dice and 
stir into the custard. Bake slowly un- 
til the custard is set and the bread Is 
brown. This takes an hour and a quar-

pledged his revolver. Without saying 
a word, the pawnbroker crossed the 
room, laid McGloin's gun on the in-

"Never," growled McOloin. ,

The early days of January are a 
time when people look ahead and 
plan for the coming year. Business 
men lay out new campaigns and 
start selling projects. It is a period 
of hope, and forward looking folks 
always entertain the feeling that the 
commg months will be better than 
those just passed. 

While some people are alwavs 
counting chickens before they are 
hatched, yet the successes of life are 
all won by planning. Those that 
look ahead, that forsee difficulties 
and study how to meet them, that 
have confidence to make new de- 
partures, are the one s that win out 
Those who consider life and busi- 
ness too uncertain to make any plans 
and merely therish the hope of con- 
tinuing along in the same old rut

in many eases will fail to hold their 
present conditions.

people of Boona county the Recor-

John Henry Patterson, head of a 
great corporation was 77 years old 
December 13. The message he sent 
to the company's 10,000 employes in 
all parts of the world was this: 

Keep young by associating with 
young things. The newspapers are 
youngest — born every day. 

A wealth of philosophy is to be 
found in these two sentences. There 
was a time when the accumulation 
of years meant the adoption of cer- 
tain customs. If a man was old in 
years he must act the part. His cloth- 
ing spoke his age. He grew whiskers, 
bought square-toed shoes and culti- 
vated dignity. His habits of life were 
changed to such an extent that little 
remained for him to do. except pot- 
ter around. Age conquered him with- 
out a struggle because it was the cus- 
tom to refrain from struggling. The 
habit of growing old affected women 
1 the same as men. Neither men nor 
women took the Patterson advice 
and associated with young things ex- 
cept such association as they had 
with little children. The children lov-

lisld. „ 

Changes in the Federal taxes vot- 
ed by Congress last month went in- 
to effect the first of the year.Here is 
how some of the changes will effect 
you : 

When you ride on a railroad train 
or an inland or coastwise steamer 
you no longer will have to pay to 
the Government 8 per cent of the 
amount of your fare and 8 per cent 
of the cost of your seat, berth or 

When you ship freight you will not 
be assessed an extra 3 per rent of 
the cost. Likewise you can send pack- 
ages by express or parcel post with- 
out havingto give up a "war tax." 

When yoh visit the corner drug- 
store for a bottle of proprietary med- 
icine, a tube of tooth paste, a toilet 
preparation or the like you will es- 
cape the vexatioun stamp taxes. 

When you go to a soda fountain 
you no longer will find Uncle Sam 
holding out his hond for a penny on 
each 10 cents or fraction that you 
pay the clerk for a drink or a plate 
of ice-cream. 

If you wish to sport a pair of shoes 
costing more than $10 or a shirt cost- 
ing more than $3 you will not have 
to lay out a tax. These and all the 
other so-called luxury taxes on cloth- 
ing, as well as those on umbrellas, 
parasos, sun shades, picture frames, 
trunks, valises, pocketbooks, xc, go 
into the discard. 

If you live in a place that still can 
boast of a ten-cent movie show or 
other place of amusement you wil 1 . 
not be ossessed a penny tax. If the 
charge exceeds 10 cents, however, 
you will continue to pay a war levy 
at thepresent rates of a cent for 
each 10 cents or fraction. 

All heads of families with depend- 
ents will get a slight reduction in 
their income tax during the new 
year, the extent being $8 for each 
dependent as a result of the increase 
from $200 to $400 in the ademption 
on account of dependents. 

If you are married and your net 
income in 1921 was $5,000 or less, 
however, you will get a still further 
reduction in taxes, as the normal ex- 
emption for married men in this 
class has been increased from $2,- 
000 to $2,500. Single men receive 
no additional exemption and can de- 
duct only $1,000 from their income.

Am Appeal of Hit Farm Bu- 
reau to Tbo Farm+s of 
loano Bounty. 

W* have passed through dark 
i, juat a little while ago we were 

for you all they can, but as a man 
who* i» proud of his manhood, of his 
individuality, which God has given 
to each of us, we know that if you 
would Btop to think, I have my place, 
to fill, my responsibility to bear, a 
part no one els* -an assume, and to 
make my Farm Bureau a success, I 
j muat give my presence, my interest, 
and the best that is in me to it. I*t 
us all ask ourselves this: If every 

member of our Farm Bureau was 
juat like me whet kind of • Farm 
Bureau would my Farm Bureau be? 

Do you know that measured in terms 
of purchasing powers, the farmers 
dollar in 1920 was worth eighty- 
nine cents. In May of 1921 it was 
77 cents. During the past three 
months it has been worth 38 cents 
lesB than, in any proceeding three 
months in thirty years? We are told 
by Secretary of Agriculture, Henry 
C. Wallace, that in the past two 
years we have built up one of the 
greatest organizations in numbers, 
in money raised, and in systematic 
organization, it is the strongest the 
country has ever seen. Our task now 
is to keep it and make a change in 
wViat the farmers dollar is worth, 
and make it grow by holding to the 
old maxim, Honesty is the Best Pol- 
true men, not only is it the best pol- 
^>ut as a principal it is the first 
necessity for success. Man's word is 
God in man. 

Economics is but a study of hu- 
man relationship. The acme of econ- 
omics wa 8 reached in a statement 
made upon a mountain top by a 
great teacher, when he said: 

"I can do no more than I say to 
you. That whatever our occupation 
or whatever our calling that of the 
old Golden Rule of human relation- 
ship it juat a. iound economically 
and just at necessary morally today 
as when first emanciated. I am con- 
vinced the greatest epoch of our 
country is just ahead. May its sun- 
rise find u s with our morning work 
done, and ready to go to the field. It 
is the duty of every member of the 
Farm Bureau, and of every farmer 
in Boone county to come forward 
at once and pay his dues for wiis 
year, so as to give your directors an 
idea of how many members and how 
much finance they have back of them. 
As you all know we are preparing to 
build a warehouse that will be in 
practical connection with every far- 
mer inJJoone county, so as to give 

lng w ithproaperity, a little la- 

i over expansion of prices and 

Its forced our prosperity to give 

to depression and stagnation of 

■ess, but, fortunately, we see 

the light at the end of the tunnel. 

Depression naturally breeda bus- 
iness revival, but it ie a slow, ted- 
io»m process. One very important 
cs»as» for the slow revival of busi- 
MaffJ has been the crippled financial 
condition of the farmer, and con- 
k aeqeentty of the country banks. 

B»j4 let each of us remember as our 
names are enrolled on the book of 
% the Farm Bureau, that we are not 

oajy members of our Local Bureau, 
bat members which consists of one 
million, five hundred thousand mem- 
bers, and covers our great United 
States from East to West, from 
North to South, represented by the 
moat competant man of our day. 

Through our co-operating togeth- 
er, we have made as wonderful a [£?' Be hon ? w,t . h ou ™elves, 
growth at J?- 1 ' £ the Bean Stalk, 
who said: "By golly, she is sure 
growing fast." But, while we are re- 
membering all these things, let us 
alao remember, we are as one big 
wheel, each individual member a 
spoke., and if any one of us fail in 
our responsibilities, or our part, or 
try to shift our part on the other 
fellow, we cripple our organization 
and cause it to break down. Just as 
far as we stand as that individual 
spoke i n this great, wheel, which, to 
do its best must nave every spoke 
in place and in the best of condi- 
tion, each bearing his part and giv- 
ing of himself the best that is in 

Another great factor I want to 
• call to your remembrance is, this 

Great American Farm Bureau Fed- 
eration is not being built for one 
day or for one year. We will derive 
great benefits from it, but it is 
bound to grow and be one of the 
great blessings given from God to 
our children. We will see our mis- 
takes and remedy them, and this 
groat Federation has adopted the 
scientific method of arriving at con- 
elustions by appointing the best 
trained men to investigate the big 
political and economic problems 
carefully before taking a stand. As 
a result, the Federation now has a 
tariff research department, a trans- 
portation Bureau, a Financial De- 
partment, various marketing com- 
mittees and several other research 
Bareaus devoted to gathering data 
on various subjects. 

K has brought Agriculture for- 
,• ward as the biggest business in 

America, so vividly to the attention 
of the general public that its su- 
preme importance is now recognized. 
| Tfc* farmer is now sitting across the 

table consulting with the banker, the 
Financier, the railways, the city 
chambers of commerce and all the 
reat; And we find this all brought 
about through co-operation, and can 
truly say Together we stick; Di- 
vided we'er stuck." 

We find co-operation is nothing 
new. It is a great thing and an old 
thing, but has been neglected by the 
farmers in agriculture. Take our 
Mutual Insurance Companies in the 
state of Michigan alone, they have 
saved the farmers some tw.o million 
dollars annually. We have some two 
thousand Mutual Insurance Com- 
panies in the W. S. that carry insur- 
ance at thirt y cents per hundred 
against seventy cents to one dollar, 
charged by Stock Co. 

For every man to feel his need of 
Co-operative effort, must know that 
sticking together is their salvation, 
and then when cooperation improves 
the quality or renders a real service 
in distribution, bringing with it a 
fair portion of the consumers dol- 
lar, it becomes a vital force. We 
might ask what co-operative buying 
has for its purpose. Getting supplies 
far less money through purchasing 
in larger lots, and eliminating some 
expense by doing without certain 
services, or having the farmer take 
care of them himself. 

Co-operative buying of this kind 
is worth while to the farmer. By 
making proper financial arrange- 
ments so that bad debts are elimin- 
ated and to some extent Sy obtain- 
ing profits of dealers. 

My farmer brother each of us 
must come to realize to make all 
these things possible and an assur- 
ed thing. We must unite our inter- 
ests and feel our individual respon- 
sibility to this Great American Farm 
Bureau Federation, through our 
own Local Farm Bureaus. None of 
us, in the call to our country would 
like to have been called a shirk. 
now no man who is a farmer, 
afford to be a shirker. 

We will get out of our Farm 
reau just what we put into it. 
we want to derive these hem lit 

mast give our support financially, 
with our p resent.- and opinion.-, tad 
hearty cooperation to the work.

The Legislature is an old fashion- 
ed one. It doesn't care for the new- 
fangled stuff in laws. It desires eith- 
er to stand pat or return to the 
good old days when things weren't 
legislated against so much. It's <o 
old-fashioned that it 'a perfectly ac- 
quiscent in being rim by.oJA-timera, 
"good fellows" who may not be the 
leaders of advanced thought, but at 
least know the ropes and short 
cuts. Being agricultural in the ma- 
jority, conservation is written all ov- 
er it. That's why there's a strong 
sentiment to let well enough alone. 
This condition makes it unlikely 
that anti-race track legislation will 
be successful, regardless of the ag- 
itation for it. That's the spirit 
which i s opposing the oT 
the minimum wage law and seeks to 
repeal the law enacted in 1920, 
which makes the County School Su- 
perintendent appointive at thj 
hands of the County School Board, 
instead of being elected by the pub- 

The temper of the state is typified 
correctly by the personnel of the 
lawmaking bodies. This makes it al- 
most certain that County Superin- 
tendents of Schools will be elected 
by the public in the future. This is 
the wish of the Republican and 
Democratic legislators alike. They 
feel that if the 1920 legislation on 
this point was progressive, it wa3 
ahead of the present capabilities of 
the people, who are demanding that 
the conduct of the schools be given 
back to them.

through the devastations of the rab- 

Hon. Gamett W. Tolin has intro- 
duced a bill providing for the care 
of Juries in felony cases. The law 
now provide" that the jury be kept 
together at all times by the Sheriff 
and in the bill introduced by Repres- 
entative Tolin p r nvi«ion 1t jg,,made that 
if there should be a mixed jury when 
the women on the jury are to be 
kept to gether by a woman deputy 
sheriff. This is one of the few laws 
that has ben introduced that should 
pass and the necessity for this law 
is because of other laws making wo- 
men eligible for jury service. 

If the Legislature submits to the 
oeople of the State the question of 
issuing $50,000,000 in bonds the 
proceeds to be used for road build- 
ing, the RECORDER will make the 
guess that Boone county would Vote 
against the proposition. 

"Old Ring" Ha, Friend. 
"Old Ring" has a number of 
friends in this session who are deter- 
mined to set him free. Every would 
be emancipator i 8 of the opinion that 
at least one dog to each family 
should be tax exempt, and more than 
one legislator has prepared a bill to 
this effect. There does not seem to 
be any disposition to change the dog 
in any other particular, but if those 
interested in the sheep industry or 
otherwise hostile to "Ring" do not 
give the matter some attention, the 
head of the family will certainly go 
free of taxes. 

The Legislature will pass a bill so 
amending the present school laws 
that a tax of $1.00 on the hundred 
may be levied for school purpose.-. 
Boone county now levies 35 cents ,;. 
each $100 of taxable property. It 
has not been so many years ago that 
there was no local schiool tax and « 
number of folks are of the opinion 
that our schools were as good as 
they now are, and that the additional 
fund raised for school purposes has 
not produced the proper results. Our 
people are now complaining of the 
amount of taxes they are now pay- 
ing, and it is hoped that the Legisla- 
ture will pass no law that will re- 
quire an additional tax levy to car- 
ry it into effect. Cut out all of the 
useless and unnecessary Govern- 
ment expense.

Postmaster at Burlington states

| ury Department that that part of 
j JStvhern . yentt.l/escomprising the 
j Lexington area of the Fourth Fed

this community, hereafter will func 
tion in the sale of Government Sav- 
ings Securities thru the Fourth Fed-

instead of the Eighth Federal Re- 
serve Bank of St. Louis, Missouri. 
This means that Northern Kentucky 
is to be joined with Ohio in the sale 
of Government Savings Securities, 
and as the Buckeye state has con- 
tinuously led all other states in the 
sale of these- securities ever since 
they were first put on sale, during 
the war, t*"">aoHs i^ Kentuc!:, »ust

with the Ohioans. 

^ The new 1922 Treasury Savings 
Certificates are now available in 
denominations of $1000, $100 and 
$25, at cost prices of $800, $80 and 
$20 respectively. These certificates 
pay 4 »4 per cent interest compound- 
de semi-annually if held until ma- 
turity, 5 years from date of issue. 
They can, however, be redeemed any 
time prior to maturity, in which 
event interest is paid at the rate of 
3V> per cent compounded semi-an- 
nually. They are free from all state 
and local taxes, and any individual, 
corporation or partnership can own 
up to $5,000 worth of this issue. 
They are issued in registerable form 
only, insuring the owner against all 
loss, and are always worth more 
than they edst, as they are not sub- 
ject to any market fluctuation. 

The Postmaster at Burlington is 
now ready to receive aplications for 
the purchase of these certificates, 
and any additional information can 
also be secured from the Savings Di-

country, and never formulated 'any 
special plans to develop it. No com- 
munity of interest was created. The 
business men of a live city in these 
times, realize that their prosperity 
is dependent upon the industrial de- 
velopment of the outlying country. 

Hcpce they go in with farmers 
and business men of near by com- 
munities to "plan for joint measures 
that shall increase agricultural and 
manufacturing production through 
the entire district. 

Our people should work for busi- | 
ness and civic welfare in all sur- j 
rounding towns and villages, so that ' 
the people uH through this section 
should look to this community for 
leadership all along the hoc ,.f 
progress. This .loser relation wi 1 
not merely make business friend*, 
but it will so promote the advance I enacted 

of the whole section that all IndUl I H

The race track bill, or Senate Bill 
No. 18, was introduced by the Rev. 
John A. Lee, Senator from Gallatin 
county, and it was referred to the 
Judiciary Committee, consisting of 
Senators White L. Moss, chairman; 
B. T. Davis, R. C. Simmons, Frank 
E. Daugherty and William Wallace. 

The Baptist minister's bill is head- 
ed "an act to amend 1961 and 3914 
B. Kentucky Statutes, and also to 
amend an act approved March 11th, 
1920, entitiled an act prohibiting 
betting or wagering on horse races 
other than at licensed track or with- 
in inclosures during regular meet- 
ings wherein running, trotting , or 
pacing races are being conducted 
by associations regularly organized 
for that purpose and providing a pen- 
alty therefor." 

In contrast to Rev. Mr. Lee is 
Rev. C. D. McCaw, who represents 
Paducah in the House. He proposes 
to support the pari-inutuels. 

"It's foolish,**" he said, "to think 
you can legislate a man into the 
J Kingdom of God. I have been a min- 
ister 17 years and I believe in com- 
j Dion sense, and you can't fool me 
t with all this bunk about letting. I 
! had rather see a man go to the race 
track and put up his bet than to ha"e 
, the state run over with 'bucket 
! shops.' Besides, the state is recelv-

been an administrative failure, mark- 
ed by bad appointments in its for- 
eign service, re-thronement of spec- 
ial privilege, nullification of the prin- 
ciple of the civil service law and a 
general recrudescence of reactionary 

The end of 1921 finds the liberal 
and prigressive element of the party 
in revolt against the reactionary spir- 
it and policy wheh dominates both 
the legislative and administrative 
branches, and there is nothing to In 
dicate that the party intends to dp 
any better or wishes to do any bet- 
ter in 1922. 

The Democratic party on the*other 
hand has a record for 1921 of trying 
to be helpful. It has given substan- 
tial help in the way of constructive 
amendments in specific itm* of leg- 
islation which was bad as a whole. 
Essentially a party of economy, it 
has sought to check Republican cn- 
tragagance and to aid the Republi- 
cans generally by its example of pro 
gressiveism. It has been succes«fu2 
chiefly in preventing some torn i I 
with the aid of Progressive Kepub i- 
' cans from some western states. The 
Democratic party offered a complete 
reconstruction program in 1919, that 
I was rejected. As a minoritj party 
' in Congress it can only point to pre- 
| vious Democratic prosperity when i{ 
wus in full power and cite the 
1 gressive legislation whfcfi m.ulc 
great prosperitj po s:Ue. It can face

optional provisions of the pending

against the "cash bonus" clause in 
the bill ha s befogged the issue, Han-

McCumber, author of the bill, as

Because he hadriot his commit-

Government hospitals to wander in

gion is starting a vigorous investiga- 
tion of red tape evils.

the uaua 

• t:\x law 




meet ana as neany everybody thil 
they are unjustlv taxed, the agitata 11 
<>f • ' c question seems to meet the 
general approval of the discontent- 

It was "taxation without repres- 
entation" that induced the Ameri- 
can Colonies to throw off th» yoke 
of bondage and this seems to have 
i>ecn succeeded b, "taxa<i" -»ith 
misrepresentation" in these latter 
days, judging from the character of 
the complaints heard. 

After years of unsatisfactory ex- 
perience with the very worst tax laws 
ever conceived in any State, a new- 
system was introduced and the pres- 
ent tax laws in Kentucky have been 
pronounced to be as good as any 
and far better than most of the oth- 
er States, and yet there are some 
very good people who are opposed 
to them. ." 

The objections to the present laws 
indicate a lack of information as to 
the purpose and results of the Class 
ifiration System of Taxation and 
some of the complaints are rather 
curious in face of the actual facts 
and ligures shown r in .the Reports of 
the State Auditor, ;State Tax Com- 
mission and State Examiner which 
have recently been published. 

It is eomplained, for instance, that 
farming property is unfairly dis 
criminated against, but the reports 
show that this is not true. 

The State had to have more rev- 
enue as everybody knows and the 
income from State taxes has increas- 
ed about $2,500,0*0 since 1917, but 
the Report of the State Examiner 
■shows that the taxes on Seal Es- 
tate and Live Stock ha*e increased 
■only 10 per cent, while the taxes on 
Personal Property- have increased 
360 per cent. * 

As Real Estate Includes Town and 
City Lots and Improvements as well 
as Farming and Mineral Property, 
the figures may be segregated dif- 
ferently and it will .be,,setin that in 
1917 all Farming and Mineral Lands 
and Improvements, Live Stock- and 
Agricultural Implements, generally 
' described as Country Property, be- 
cause they are not subject to city 
taxes, paid in State taxes $2,475,- 
219 and for 1921 will pay $3,074,- 

Town Lots, and Improvements, 
Tangible and Intangible Personal 
Property, listed mostly in towns and 
cities, paid $2,010,682 in 1917 and 
will pay $4,454,674 in 1921. 

The increase in taxes as shown in 
this general way is as follows: 

Increase in Taxes on 

Country Property $599,205 

Increase in Taxes on City 

and Town Property. . 1,843,992 

As there are 270,000 farms in the 
State, the average increase in State 
taxes has been about $2 per farm 
without deducting other then farm- 
ing property, which would lessen the 
increase to about $1.75 per farm. 

Town Lots have always been as- 
sessed higher in proportion than 
other land, but farming land has 
been assessed higher in proportion 
than mineral lands and it is this 
lack of uniformity in assessments 
that arouses so much complaint. 

Assessments are provided for by 
an old Constitutional law and at- 
tention is called to the fact that 
this law has heretofore been applied 
to Bonds, Stocks, Mortgages, Notes 
and Money, which -are assessed at 
the full value, while Land has been 
generally assessed at from 40 to 70 
per cent of the fair cash value ex- 
cept perhaps, in some extreme cases. 
That Farming Property is not dis- 
criminated against is shown by (u) 
The exemption from all taxation of 
products grown within the year and 
still in the hands of the producer; 
(b) agricultural products when tax- 
ible are favored ^ '.*>*■»- local ta*: 
rates, which are limited to 15 cents 
in countries and towns; (c) agricul- 
tural implements and machinery are 
exempt from local taxes; (d) live 
stock is taxed at only 10 cents for 
State purposes and over one-third is 
■ exempted from all taxation. 

It is argued that farming lands 
have to pay county as well as State 
taxes and it is also true that town 
and city lots and a large amount of 
other property must pay and city 
taxes as well as State and county 
taxes, but when it is considered that 
lands and lots are valuable according 
to their location and utility and that 
more than^dperhalf of the money 
paid in taxes is expended on schools, 
roads and public improvements, and 
which enhance their. value, the taxes 
on such property are in effect an 
investment which returns to the 
owners in increased value. 

But even the increased value of 
land is often a cause of complaint 
which is impossible to overcome 
when the owner says he does not 
want to sell and "don't want tho 
value to increase as it means more 
taxet." "U n e a t ne d Increment" 
mearv, i > more to tlus rluhs of ob- 
jectors than "the Fourth Dimen- 
sion," and it is this element that in 
retarding the growth of the Stati 

Many of the complaints are from 
small taxpayers who have little ex 
erpt land to tax and who cannot mi 
derstand why they have to pny both 
State and county taxes on then

Has Many Advantages That Ap- 
• peal to Home Builder. 

Many new Ideas appear in this 
formal tailored frock for the coming 
fall nnd winter in which the vogue 
for embroidery and that for fringes 
have been so artfully nnd beautifully 
united. It takes the place of a formal 
tailored suit, and Is perhaps even 
more adaptable to many occasions 
than Its forerunner. The phaure tells 
Its story : bat note the shape of the 
neck and sleeves, the narrow lace 
vestee and strap belt, the ingenious 
placing of embroidery — they are all 


the expenditure of the better part 
of the money received from taxes 
on the things which add to its value, 
but no sensible person will contend 
that taxes benefit bonds and stocks, 
which are worth no more in one lo- 
cality than another and the taxes' 
really diminish their value by cur- 
tailing the small fixed income. More- 
over, the property on which they are 
issued is also taxed and the taxes 
on the securities are in addition to 
the other taxes. 

Now^all owners..sof Bonds and 
Stocks, Notes and Money on deposit 
in banks are taxed the same way, no 
matter where they reside and it 
would be foolisja for any person who 
does not happen to own such prop- 
erty to complain because others own 
and pay, taxes on it. Can it not be 
seen that every dollar received from 
taxes helps to keep down the taxes 
on all other property and lessens the 
burden on all? 

The man who owns property in a 
city or town and pays city and town 
taxes might as well complain because 
his country neighbor pays no city 
taxes as for any one to complain be- 
cause some one else has other kinds 
of taxible property than himself. 

"It is property and not people 
that is taxed and although the law 
does not presume to dictate in what 
class of property any one must in- 
vest his money, it merely assumes to 
tax all property of the same class 
alike, no matter by whom it is own- 
ed or where the owner resides, and 
this is the essence of uniformity." 

Taxes have been increased and 
doubtless will continue to increase 
as there seems to be no limit to 
governmental expenditures and the 
advocates of education, good roads 
and the managers of all the institu- 
tions maintained by the State, coun- 
ties and towns are continually clam- 
oring for more money. 

The State revenue from taxes has 
increased from $5,000,0000 to $7,- 
500,000 in the last four years and 
including all other sources from 
about $9,250,000 to probably $14,- 
000,000 but the cry is always for 
more money regardless of where it 
is to come from. 

It is much easier to increase as- 
sessments and tax rates than to dis- 
cover more property to tax and this 
plan has been followed too long' in 
"...ia«?ky, wl.<,re too much attention 
has been directed to raising revenue 
by the taxing authorities than by- 
tax payers in investigating how it is 

In an adjoining State the taxpay- 
ers came to the conclusion that it 
was wrong to permit the spenders 
of the people's money to have the 
authority to levy the taxes and they 
were restricted by the fixing of a 
maximum rate for all state, county 
and city purposes. The spender.* 
were not sfficiently restricted, how- 
ever, and in some instances exceeded 
the revenue and the plan has not 
been altogether satisfactory, but it 
had one good effect as it resulted in 
a great improvement in the assess 
ment of all property at the fair cash 
value and this is more needed in 
solving the tax question in Ken- 
tucky than anything else. 

Classification and Assessments are

Sudden changes of popular fuel- 
ing arc one of the most marked fea- 
tures of recent politics. This tend- 
ency has both good and bad features. 
It will lead to mistakes, the result 
of impulse and ill considered ac- 
tion. But it is likely to prevent long 
standing wrongs from becoming in- 

The people will not get so tied 
hand and foot by a network of tradi- 
tions and fixed habits, that it will 
be almost impossible to get neces- 
sary changes accomplished. 

The overwhelming vote for the Re- 
publican candidate in 1920 was one 
of those sudden changes. It was de- 
cisive and unmistakable. The people 
wanted a change in political manage- 
ment and they got it. 

But present signs are indicating 
a different trend of popular senti- 
ment, a feeling that the decision of 
1920 was a mistake. Nearly all the 
cities and several states that voted 
this fall, showed Democratic tend- 
encies, as already noted in these 
columns. What does it mean. 

Some people say it is an uprising 
of the proletariat, of the mass of 
the people against the "business in- 
terests." There may be something in 
that. It is a sign that the mass of the 
people feel that the prominent men 
of business who exercise a leading 
position in the Republican party, are 
not sufficiently thoughtful of the 
common people. They make their 
plans to assure prosperity and wel- 
fare for the business corporations 
and large employers. 

But what are they doing for pros- 
perity of the mass of the people? 
Have they earnestly striven to ben- 
efit all the people, even the most 
struggling ones, who need watchful 
care more than anyone else? 

It is the feeling of the popular 
masses, that the ruling powers do 
not sufficiently consider the common 
people. The next election may be. as 
swift and sudden a protest as that 
which settled the election of 1920. 

We clipped the following from the 
court news column in last Friday's 

Attorney Joel C. Clore, who also 
is Postmaster of Cincinnati, is seek- 
ing to be relieved of $1,300 he has in 
his charge, but there are two claim- 
ants to it, and so he filed a petition 
in Comomn Pleas Court yesterday, 
in which he seeks authority to pay 
the money into Court and let the 
law determine to whom it belongs. 

On August 10, 1914, A. B. WhTt- 
iock sold his farm in Boone county, 
Kentucky, and intrusted $1,500 of 
the miney to Mr. Clpre to be invest-

withdrew $200 of the money, which 
was credited on the note.

the Matson family at Cleves, and 
after his death May 13, 1921, it was 
found that his will had left all his

Farmers may prune their fruit 
trees safely during any part of the 
dormant season, except freezing 
weather, giving preference to late 
winter and early spring, according 
to recommendations made by (or- 
chard specialists at the College of 
Agriculture to Kentucky farmers 
who have inquired as to the best 
time to do this work. Young trees, 
which were planted in the fall, can 
be pruned best in the spring, the 
specialists say. 

"When old apple trees need thin- 
ning and heading back, it is advis- 
able to thin one year and head back 
the next," H. R. Niswonger, orchard 
specialist at the college said. "All 
dead and diseased branches should 
be removed and burned the first 
year. In removing laterals, it is best 
to cut close to the main branch in 
order to eliminate stubs. It is a good 
practice to cover all large cuts with 
grafting wax to prevent enBrance 
of disease." 

The pruning of trees of this kind 
should consist in correcting crowded 
conditions of the lower part by re- 
moving small branches, especially 
those that contain old, worn out 
fruit spurs. Heavy pruning by cut- 
ting out large limbs encourages 
wood growth near the cut end the 
following season and reduces pro- 
duction the second year. The removal 
of large limbs on the lower part and 
in the center of the tree opens large 
holes which admit too much sunlight 

"Heading back the main limbs by 
cutting to a side branch which points 
down and out will tend to lower the 
tree top, and make spraying and 
harvesting of the fruit easier. Head- 
ing back by completely removing 
large upright branches is to be con- 
demned because this treatment opens 
the top of the tree. 

"It is difficult to rejuvenate old 
neglected peach trees satisfactorily, 
but those which are healthy and vig- 
orous may be renewed by rather se- 
vere cutting back. The tall branches 
should be cut back to laterals and 
as much as three or four years of 
growth removed if necessary. Crowd- 
ed lateral branches may be thinned 
and the central ones cut back to en- 
courage renewal of the r bearing 


(By F. C. Dugan) 

State Sanitary Engineer 

Water is necessary to life. Water 
free from disease producing agents 
is necessary to health. The charac- 
teristics of good water are that it 
must be clear, colorless, and cool, 
that is must be free from objection- 
able odor or taste, that it must not 
be hard — for this makes washing 
difficult, and that it must be free 
from disease-producing agents. 

It is remarkable in this day and 
age how many people on the farm 
and in the city are using water 
which ig injurious to their health and 
yet are unwilling to take the neces- 
sary steps to secure good water. 

The cost of water-borne diseases 
in this State alone reaches into mil- 
lions of dollars annually, to say 
nothing about the depletion of the 
resiaJting power of the sufferers to 
other diseases. 

In discussing the water sopply on 
a farm it is well to divide the soli 

leel into four sections, as farm wa! 

er ordinarily is obtained from some 
■ >"c of four sources. Thi'v are: i 

cistern*; second, dug wells; third, 

deep wells, fourth, spring*. In suhas 
qoenl article* of this serieii each one 
of these four nourees of watet sup 
ply will he dinct U etch 

for ne»i wfek'a ar'i, 

From ninny there is a sitrh of re- 
lief that 1022 soon will be the date 
on our calenlar rather than 1921. 
We are on the eve of an ew year. 
While conditions continue much as 
they have been luring the past few 
months with the r aurkin e s B slowly 
bu tsurely disappearing, there are, 
however,, the inevitable uncertain- 
ties still cropping out f* inexpect- 
ed times and places. Nineteen twen- 
ty-two is being entered with decks 
clearel for action. Even though fur- 
ther aljustments must be completed, 
conditions today are in happy con- 
trast to those that faced us a year 

Ups-and-downs and hard knocks 
are sometimes a means of growth. 
It is earnestly to be hoped that bus- 
iness has profited by the obstacles 
encountered in the past, and that the 
lessons will be utilizel. Business can 
no longer be frightenel by a sudden 
jar or shock. This means progress. 

Then, too, we are getting back to 
a saner method of living and think- 
ing . Speculation in fly-by-night 
schemes has lost much of its old pop- 
ularity and in its place is a desire to 
invest in good securities. Level-head- 
edness is being shown in a truer ap- 
preciation of a dollar's value. And of 
even greater importance is the fact 
that we have at last reached the 
place where we are beginning to 
realize that no artificial machinery 
can be invented for avoiding the con- 
sequences of over trading and un- 
wise business policies; that there is 
no detour on the rough and even 
painful road of re-adjustment that 
we have been following. 

But this is no place to stop. A 
vital need at present is to aid bus- 
iness in every way possible. We aro 
faced by a peculiar situation just 
now. With the exception of the Holi- 
day trade and a few other lines of 
industry, this i s naturally the lull 
period of the year, and many people 
have made up their minds that noth- 
ing is to be expected until later. This 
is a poor way to get anywhere for it 
logically follows that if this "later" 
time fails to bring the expected de- 
velopments, then this same policy 
will be continued. It is easy to give 
advice and sometimes lifficult to 
know just where to start to shove 
but with this in mind we believe that 
the thing business needs now is in- 
telligent and constructive push- 

It very frequently happens that 
the most erective way to accomplish 
something is to take advantage of 
the little things even though they 
may appear inlirect. The lay of 
"easy money" has passed and into 
its shoes has stepped a keen compe- 
tition for business. To meet this 
competition the so-called "little 
things" must be watched. Advant- 
age must be taken of every oppor- 
tunity as it presents itself, and not 
only that, but we must go after bus- 
iness. It is true, business is poor and 
results are hard to get, but it cer- 
tainly can lo no harm to get organ - 
izaions back into the old-time meth- 
ods of good hard sale efforts. The 
success of companies and individuals 
will be measured by their determin- 
ation and a real honest desire to 
serve the public. 

Thrift is one of the master keys 
that will open the way to better 
business. Thrift and economy are 
old fashioned virtues but coupled 
with present day intelligence, a com- 
bination is formed that is hard to 
beat. As time goes on people are 
appreciating more and mora the nec- 
essity for thrift, and it is^gradually 
gaining a larger significance than it 
has held for several years. 

There is need of confidence in 
present day business, and thrift as 
a confidence builder stands in the 
front rank. From the depositor with 
his "nest egg" for a rainy day, to 
the large corporation that largely 
through thrift has adjusted itself to 
present conditions, it has no sub- 

By thrift is not meant denying 
ourselves the necessitities of life, or 
carrying it to the extent of miserli- 
ness. We did, however, s^w* -iotous 
spending a fair trial. We lvuil rf that 
this period of artificial prosperity- 
could only be temporary, and what 
we have passed through in 1921 was 
the relapse that followed. 

As we face 1922 nothing will help 
more to carry' us through the re- 
mainder of the re-adjustment period, 
nothing will help more toward good 
staple business and a real prosper- 
ity, than a foundation of individual 
corporate, municipal and national 
thrift. — Business Review.

any attention to me, except my old 
friend Col. John R. Whitson, the old

Lexington, Ky., Jan 16. — As in 
former years, dairying in all its im- 
portant phases is to have a prom- 
inent place on the program of the 
tenth anual Farm and Home Con- 
vention to be held Jan. 31 and Feb. 
1, 2 and S, acording to plans being 
made for the event. Exhibits of fine 
dairy cattle, meetings iof various 
dairy organizations and discussions 
relative to the management of the 
herd will take up a large part of the 

Among the organizations which 
will hold meetings in connection 
with this part of the convention pro- 
gram are the Kentucky Jersey Cat- 
tle Club, Kentucky Holstein Cattle 
Club and Kentucky Manufacturers 
of Dairy Products. 

A number of prominent dairy 
authorities already have been en- 
gaged to address the farmers and 
their wives who are interested in 
dairying, according to the announce- 
ment. These will include W. W. Fitz- 
patrick, secretary of the American 
Guernsey Cattle Club, C. G. Vahl- 
kamp, Paducah, president of tho 
Kentucky Dairy Cattle Club; J. C. 
McDowell, senior dairyman from the 
United States Department of Agri- 
culture; Hsrry Hartke, Covingtin, 
W. E. Skinner, secretary of the Na- 
tional Dairy Show; C. Oscar Ewing, 
Louisville; J. M. Howie, Anchorage, 
Clarence Smith, LaGrange and Mrs. 
S. T. Henning, Shelhyville. J. J. 
Hooper, head of the college daffy 
department also will take part in the 


Few people realize how much good 
community work is being done by the 
American Legion. For instance, the 
Moberly, Mo., post has been backing 
a good roads campaign. Kalamazoo, 
Michigan, post promoted a move- 
ment for a $150,000 community me- 
morial building. The Dublin, Ga., 
post has helped establish a play- 
ground for the children. Ten posts in 
Oklahoma have worked to establish 
community libraries. 

The employment committees of 
these posts have done a world of 
good in finding work for service 
men. Of several hundred community 
centers established since the war, 
many have been financeckentirely by 
legion men. At Chinook, Montana, 
t elehgion men gravelled the main 
street of the town. At Fayette, Mo., 
they cleaned up the strees. Similar 
stories cominy from all over the 
country, set a fine example of civic 
effort. The people should do every- 
thing possible to foster the growth 
of so useful an organization.

When an industry has been run-

When the Supreme Court of the 
United States, on a technicality, re- 
versed by a decision of five to four 
the lower court which had sentenced 
Truman H. Newberry to the peni- 
tentiary for his corrupt candidacy 
for a seat in the Senate, it reminded 
the Senate that that body had the 
authority to do what the courts, un- 
der a defective law, could not do. 
As the judge of the qualifications of 
its own members, said the Supreme 
Court, "the National Government is 
not without power to protect itself 
against corruption, fraud or other 
malign influences." 

The Senate, to whom the Supreme 
Court thus passed the Newberry 
case, has now disposed o fit. And 
instead of protecting the National 
Government against corruption it 
has condoned corruption. 

And in doing so it presents the 
unprecedented, the pusillonimous 
spectacle of pretending to condemn 
corruption, yet "vindicating" the 
man who profits by Corruption. 

Conceding that too much money 
was expended to elect Newberry and 
declaring formally that "the expen- 
diture of such excessiv esums in be- 
half of a candidate, either with or 
without his knowledge and consent, 
being contrary to sound public pol- 
icy, harmful to the honor and dig- 
nity of the Senate and dangerous to 
the perpetuity of a free Government, 
such excessive expenditures are 
hereby severely condemned and dis- 
approved," the Senate thereupon 
seats the man who profits by his 
crime against "sound public policy," 
against "the honor and dignity "of 
the Senate" and against "the * per- 
petuity of a free Government!" 

Whereupor. < Newberry issues a 
public paean of gratitude for thi.; 
"vindication" and "exoneration" of 

himself and "all concerned" the 

same being his family and friends j 
who put up the money to buy his 
seat, he claims, without his know- ; 

The Senate, by the terms of its 
own resolution, has vindicated and 
exonerated nobody. It has condemn- 1 
ed Newberry's crime but approved ! 
Newberry the criminal.

Some Aspects of the 
Farmers' Problems 


(Reprinted from Atlantic Monthly) 


Tho whole rural world Is In a fer- 
ssent of unrest, and there la an un- 
paralleled volume and intensity of de- 
termined, If not angry, protest, and an 
omlnoua swarmin* of occupational con- 
ferences, interest grouping*, political 
movements and propagnnda. Such s 
turmoil cannot but arrest our atten- 
tion. Indeed, It demands our careful 
study and examination. It Is not like- 
ly that six million aloof and ruggedly 
independent men have come together 
and banded themselves into active 
unions, societies, farm bureaus, nnd so 
forth, for no sufficient cause. 

Investigation of the subject conclu- 
sively proves that, while there Is much 
overstatement of grievances and mis- 
conception of remedies, the furmers 
are right In complaining of wrongs 
long endured, and right In holding that 
It is feasible to relieve their Ills with 
benefit to the rest of the community. 
This being the case of an industry 
that contributes, in the raw material 
form alone, about one-third of tho na- 
tional annual wealth production and 
is the means of livelihood of about 49 
per cent of the population, it Is ob- 
vious that the subject Is one of grave 
concern. Not only do the farmers 
make up one-half of the nation, but 
the well-being of the other half de- 
pends upon them. 

So long as we have nations, a wise 
politdal economy will aim at a large 
degree of national self-sufficiency and ( 
self-containment. Rome fell when the 
food supply was too far removed from 
the belly. Like her, we shall destroy 
our own agriculture and extend our 
sources of food distantly and precarl 

of their inability to meet mortgages er 
to pay current bills, and bow, seeking 
relief from their Ills, they are plsa- 
sing to form pools. Inaugurate farm- 
er*' strikes, and demand legislation 
abolishing grain exchanges, private 
cattle markets, and the like, we ought 
not hastily to brand them as economic 
heretics and highwaymen, and hurl at 
them the charge of being seekers of 
speclsl privilege Rsther, we should 
ssk If their trouble is not ours, and 
ceo what can be done to improve the 
situation. Purely from self-interest, 
if for no higher motive, we should 
help them. All of us want to get back 
permanently to "normalcy;" but Is It 
reasonable to hope for that condition 
unless our greatest and most basic in- 
dustry can be put on a Bound and solid 
permanent foundation? The farmers 
are not entitled to special privileges; 
but are they not right In demanding 
that they be placed on an equal foot- 
ing with the buyers of their products 
and with other Industries? 


Let ua, then, consider some of the 
farmer's grievances, and see how far 
they flTe real. In doing so, we should 
remember that, while there have been, 
and still are. Instances of purposeful 
abuse, the subject should not be ap- 
proached with any general Imputation 
to existing distributive agencies of de- 
liberately intentional oppression, but 
rather with the conception that the 
marketing of farm products has not 

An ancient evIL and a persistent 
one, is the undergradlng of farm prod- 
ucts, with the result that what the 
farmers sell as of one quality Is re-

Master Commissioner. 

•ously, If we do not see to It that our ] sold as of a higher. That this sort of 

farmers are well and fairly paid for 
their services. The farm gives the 
nation men as well as food. Cities 
derive their vitality and are forever 
renewed from the country, but an im- 
poverished countryside exports Intelli- 
gence and retains uninteiligence. 
Only the lower grades of mentality 
nnd character will remain on, or seek, 
the farm, unless agriculture Is capable j 
of being pursued with contentment and • 
adequate compensation. Hence, to em- 
bitter and Impoverish the farmer Is to 
dry up and contaminate the vital 
sources of the nation. 

The wsr showed convincingly how 
dependent the nation Is on the full 
productivity of the farms. Despite 
herculean efforts, agricultural produc- 
tion kept only a few weeks or months 
ahead of consumption, and that only 
by increasing the acreage of certain 
staple crops at the cost of reducing 
that of others. We ought not to for- 
get that lesson when we ponder on 
the farmer's problems. They are truly 
common problems, and there should 
be no attempt to deal with them as 
if they were purely selfish demands 
of a clear-cut group, antagonistic to 
the rest of the community. Rather 
should we consider agriculture In the 
light of broad national policy, just 
as we consider oil, coal, steel, dye- 
stuffs, and so forth, at sinews of na- 
tional strength. Our growing popula- 
tion and a higher standard of living 

demand Increasing food supplies, and 

more wool, cotton, hides, and the rest. 

With the disappearance of free or 

cheap fertile land, additional acreage 

and Increased yields can come only 

from costly effort. This we need not 

expect from an impoverished or un- 
happy rural population. 
It will not do to tnke a narrow view 

of the rural discontent, or to appraise 

It from the standpoint of yesterday. 

This is peculiarly an age of flux and 

change and new deuls. Because a 

thing always has been so no longer 

means that it Is righteous, or always 

shall be so. More, perhaps, than ever 

before, there Is a widespread feeling 

that all human relations can be Im- 
proved by taking thought, and that It 

Is not becoming for the reasoning ani- 
mal to leave his destiny largely to 

chance and natural Incidence. 

Prudent and orderly adjustment of 

production and distribution in accord- j quences, both 

ance with consumption Is recognized i community. 

Commissioner's Sole. 

Public Sale! 

chicanery should persist on any im 
portent scale In these days of busi- 
ness Integrity would seem almost in- 
credible, but there Is much evidence 
that it does so persist. Even as I 
write, the newspapers announce the 
suspension of several firms from the 
New York Produce Exchange for ex- 
porting to Germany as No. 2 wheat a 
whole shipload of grossly Inferior wheat 
mixed with oats, chaff and the like. 

Another evil Is that of Inaccurate 
weighing of farm products, which, it 
is charged, Is sometimes a matter of 
dishonest intention and sometimes of 
protective policy on the part of the 
local buyer, who fears that he may 
"weigh out" more than he "weighs in." 
A greater grievance Is that at pres- 
ent the field farmer has little or no 
control over the time and conditions 
of marketing his products, with the 
result that he Is often underpaid •Cor 
his products and usually overcharged 
for marketing service. The differ- 
ence between what the farmer re- 
ceives and what the consumer pays 
often exceeds all possibility of Justi- 
fication. To cite a single Illustration. 
Last year, according to figures attest- 
ed by the railways and the growers, 
Georgia watermelon-raisers received 
on the average 7.5 cents for a melon, 
the railroads got 12.7 cents for carry- 
ing It to Baltimore and the consumer 
paid one dollar, leaving 79.8 cents for 
the service of marketing and Its risks, 
as against 20.2 cents for growing and 
transporting. The hard annals of 
farm-life are replete with such com- 
mentaries on the crudeness of pres- 
ent practices. 

Nature prescribes that the farmer's 
"goods" must be finished within two 
or three months of the year, while 
financial and storage limitations gen- 
erally compel him to sell them at the 
same time. As a rule, other Industries 
are in a continuous process of finish- 
ing goods for the markets ; they dis- 
tribute as they produce, and they can 
curtail production without too great 
Injury to themselves or the commu- 
nity; but If the farmer restricts his 
output, It Is with disastrous conse- 
to himself and to the 

as wise management in every business 
but that of farming. Yet, I venture I 
to say, there is no other industry In 
which It 1h so Important to the pub i 
lie — to tin* city dweller— that proline | 
Hon should be sure, steady, and In 
creasing, and that distribution should 
be In proportion to the need. The un j

Mating up a special breeding pen 
of the best hens on the farm and the 
best male birds affords farmers one 
opportunity of increasing the profits 
from their poultry flpek, according 
to suggestions being made to Ken- 
tucky farmers by the College of Ag- 
riculture. Twelve hens and one roos- 
ter usually will make a breeding pen 
large enough for the average farm. 

Constitutional vigor, ability of the 
eggs to hatch, high egg production, 
production through a series of years, 
early maturity and breed and varie- 
tal characteristics should be taken 
into consideration when selecting 
the hens for the pen, the college 
poultrymen say. A rooster who crows 
often and has a "scrappy" nature 
usually makes a K"'" 1 breeder.

Good Thing Over. 

Heme folks in discussing the ques- 
of subscribing the $20,000 nec- 
for the contract for the recon- 
struction of the Covington and Lex- 
ington pike say that if that sum is 
raised and the road reconstructed 
the property owners, who live 
the road will pay their tax into 
the county road fund and that it will 
hewed on other roads in the county, 
Ossi is true, but that is no reason for 
a failure to subscribe. If this money 
is not raised by subscription then 
that road will go from bad to worse, 
and those living along the road will 
hnve a road over which they will be 
compelled to travel that for a part 
of the year will be practically im- 
panable as the road fund that can be 
expended on that road will not keep 
it in passable condition. The County, 
State and Federal Governments pro- 
pone to spend on that road $300,000 
and of this sum the people are asked 
to subscribe $20,000, and by doing 
thin a permanent road will be built, 
and it would require all of the road 
tax that can be raised in the county 
for the next eight years to build this 
at tile expense of the county, and if 
it Was to be built at the expense of 
the persons who own land along the 
rood, with the present road tax it 
could not be paid for within the 
next 100 years but the legislature 
might pass a law requiring the land 
owners along a road to pay the en- 
tire expense and if this should be 
done then the land owners would 
pay not only $20,000 but the entire 
$300,000, and that is the plan to 
build streets and side walks in towns, 
the property owners in towns can be 
compelled to pay the entire cost of 
boOding the streets and sidewalks. 
The proposition as now presented to 
the people, is one that it is hard for 
a person, who would give the question 
thought and consideration, to not 
exert his best efforts to raise the 
fund required. 

In all road building you arc bound 
to help some one else when you help 
yourself, and if you prefer to ride 
on a road that will be practically 
impassable, because your subscrip- 
tion to that project may help some 
one else, rather than have a concrete 
paved road over which you may ride 
in comfort, you may do so by refus- 
ing to raise this fund, and your fis- 
cal court will then be forced to say 
to the State and Federal Govern- 
ment that our people do not want 
the Lexington pike paved with con- 
crete, and the $225,000 you have for 
that purpose is now released, and 
you ace at liberty ' to spend that 
fund on some other road project. Do 
the people want the Fiscal Court of 
Beone county to be put in a posi- 
tion where this will have to be done? 
It should not be done under any 
conditions, this $226,000 set apart 
to be used on this road should be 
spent on no other road, and the pro- 
ject should not fail when we are 
within $20,000 of the goal. 

Our Fiscal Court will meet Feb- 
ruary 6th, let every one do his best 
ho that on that day a committee of 
citizens who are now receiving sub- 
scriptions, can come before the court 
with, and present subscriptions that 
amount to $20,000 and the court can 
dertify to the State and Federal 
authorities that we are no laggards, 
but have he fund necessary for he 
construction of this road. Do not de-

Exemption From Taxation For 

One, Means Exemption 

For All New Ones. 

Some years ago it was common for 
business men's associations to give a 
new industry starting in their town 
some form of bonus. Sometimes it 
was a cash subscription to stock. 
Frequently it would take the form 
of an exemption from taxation. But 
the results of this method have prov- 
ed unsatisfactorp in so many "cases, 


Where The Sun Shines Bright- 
er, Grass Grows Greener 
and Birds Sing Sweeter 

Tired of city life, the glare of 
electric lights, the noise of motor 
vehicles and factory whistles, Clint 
Weaver, after a year's sojourn in 
Burlington, moved back to his farm 
on Gunpowder creek, last Monday. 
No inducements, on the part of the 
citizens could persuade him to re- 
main among them longer. 

At a meeting of the members of 
the "Quit-cher-kickin" Chfb last Sat- 
urday night, where he had spent 
many enjoyable evenings, he said, 
with tears in his eyes: "I am going 
back to the farm, away from the 
hustle and bustle, and cements walks 
of town, to the hills and valleys of 
Gunpowder, where all the varigated 
colors of the rainbow commingle in a 
wealth of luxuriant beauty, where 
the fragrance of the wild flowers 
and the tube rose, the lilly of the 
valley and the sweet pea, the golden- 
rod and the blue-bells, the daisy 
and evening shade, melt and min- 
gle and give their combined sweet- 
ness to the winds from the four cor- 
ners of the earth — where nature 
dips her brush in sunshine and moist- 
ens it with rain and spreads upon 
earth's canvass every shade of deli- 
cate coloring, from the pinking sheen 
of the lustrous pearl to the deepest 
red of the magnificent ruby — to the 
land which supplies the table with 
all the splendid vegetables that ripen 
under Dixie's sun. 

"Back to the banks of Gunpowder 
creek, where the noise of the rip- 
pling water, wending its way to the 
beautiful Ohio, is sweet music to my 
ear; where the sunshines brighter, 
the grass grows greener and the 
birds sing sweeter; and at evening 
after Old Sol has disappeared behind 
the hills in the west, casting a shadow 
of darkness over the earth, and I can 
sit by the fircsids and sing — 
Away from the noiae and crowda, 

And the glare of the electric light; 
Back to the hills of Old Gunpowder, 

Where Hoot-Owl* "hoot" at night. 



In his address before the Kentucky 
that such scheme for attracting new Legislature, last Thursday, William 
concerns have to large extent been | Jennings Bryan said: 


(Bowling Green News.) 
Henry Ware, a farmer residing at 
Woodburn, lost a valuable horse 
Monday. The animal died from eat- 
ing some rotten corn. Other farmers 
report that some of their horses have 
been sick from the same cause. 



(Georgetown Times.) 
There was one load of Owen coun- 
ty whiskey which has never been put 
on the local market, which, it is said, 
has recently droped from $8 to $4 a 
quart. The load was in the custody 
of J. B. Towles, who was held to the 
grand jury on $200 bond. 



<M. E. Small in Carrollton News.) 
Of all the afflictions that ever be- 
fell the human family it certainly is 
that old infernal county truck. It 
makes enough noise to wake up a 
a dead man in Indiana. The city au- 
thorities have asked the county of- 
ficials to stop it, and have been told 
that it could not be run any other 
way. Well, for goodness sake, junk 
it, run it in the river, drive a corn 
cob in the capunker — do some thing 
with it, for its a disgrace to the coun 
ty. Besides, it violates the State law. 
We all are expected to be law-abid- 
ing citizens, and why should that cus- 
sed old dog house be allowed to run 
around and disturb the peace of the 
good people? I have been eating a 
good many rabbits of late, and I am 
nervous anyway; every time I hear 
a dog bark I look for a sink hole to 
jump into, and right on top of all 
that I have to listen to the roar of 
that old truck. 


Another Good Citizen Gone To 
His Rewsrd. 

Richard Edward Cloud died Jan. 
18th, 1922, from an illness from 
which he had been suffering for sev- 
eral years. Mr. Cloud was bom in 
Boom? county June 15, 1857, and 
has resided in the county all of his 
life. He was one who was very quiet 
and unassuming, and one of our 

lar attendant at its meetings, until 
his health began to fail, and he 
could no longer attend and associate 
with the members, which he so much 

He is survived by his mother, one 
brother John W. Cloud and one sis- 
ter, Mrs. Nora Walton, and a number 
of other relatives and friends to 
mourn his death. His remains were 
put in the vault in the I. O. O. F. 
cemetery at Burlington last Satur- 
day morning at 11 o'clock after a 
short service. C. Scott Chambers*, of 
Walton, had charge of the Jteneral

But it remained for an inventive 
genius down in the southwest cor- 
ner of the state to spring a new one

please. He had been suspected for 
some time of operating a still, and

Lester Gulley and C. H. Youell 
ran their machines together on the 
Burlington and Florence pike last 
Friday evening about 5:30. Mr. You- 
ell was driving his Dodge auto east 
and Mr. Gulley was driving west, and 
just this side of the first bridge out 
of town Mr. YouelPs machine struck 
Mr. Guley's truck, and came near 
pushing it over the fill at the bridge. 
The front wheel of Mr. Youell's ma- 
chine was broken and the front fen- 
der torn off, and but little damage 
was done to Mr. Gulley's truck. The 
drivers of both machines escaped in- 

given up. There was too much tend- 
ency to get hold of drifters and 
floaters, who would run a shop as 
long as they got some special fa- 
vors. When these expired, they 
might move elsewhere. 

If you give exemption from taxa- 
tion to one concern, you have to 
give it to all new ones. New enter- 
prises which would have started even 
if no inducements were offered, will 
demand this privilege and the city 
or county will lose revenue. 

It is more common to offer new 
industries start on their own merits. 
If they have good prospects, they 
should be able to secure financing 
through the banks. If chambers of 
commerce promote stock subscrip- 
tions to float a new company, and 
if the concern goes to pieces, a bad 
feeling is left that injures commun- 
ity development for many years. 

There can be no turn of prosper- 
ity until the farmer's conditions are 
improved, Mr. Bryan told the As- 
sembly. "You cannot expect pros- 
perity so long as the farmer must 
sell his product at pre-war prices.

This Congress, he said, referring 
to the national legislature, is not bet- 
ter nor worse than the preceding 
Congress, but it is worse scared be- 
cause of the pressure brought by the 
farmers. He said the farm bloc was 
responsible for the passage of the bill 
regulating packing. 

The Federal Reserve Board, he 
said, is the most important board in 
the country and yet three great 
groups are not represented on it. He 
declared that there should be a far- 
mer, a laborer and a non-banker 
business man on it. 

An amendment to a bill making 
this possible has passed the Senate. 

"We have to deal with the profi- 
teer," he said. "We regulate banks 
and make them keep within certain 
rates of interest, but the merchant 
is not regulated and many charge as

Everett Helms had been a citizen 
of Petersburg all of his life, where 
he had operated a barber shop since 
reaching manhood and was also in 
the real estate and insurance busi- 
ness. He was one of the most efficient 
young men the town of Petersburg 
ever had. All through his life he had 
been an industrious, hard worker, 
and was ever ready to lend his as- 
sistance to those in need, and he was 
held in the highest esteem by his 
neighbors, business associate* and 
friends. His taking away just at this 
time is particularly sad, and the wuV 
and three children have the sincere 
sympathy of every one. 

The funeral services were held at 
the Christian church at Petersburg, 
Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, con-

which the remains were laid to rest

In former days an enormous 
amount of cultural work was done as 
a result of long winter evenings. 
Country people used to spend an 
hour or two every night in reading. 
You could not fool them often on a 
political issue or a question of gen- 
eral intelligence. In these times when 
electric light systems turn night into 
day, and when there is much social 
life, the long winter evening has less 

Even in these hustling times, you 
find a lot of people in their quiet 
homes, digging into the problems of 
the day, or trying to make them- 
selves more intelligent about their 
own calling. ,The good old summer 
time brings to the people much in 
the way of automobile riding and 
sports and other pleasures of out 
door life. But winter with its chills 
and early darkness encourages se- 
clusion and mental application. Am- 
bitious people come through with 
broader intelligence and better in- 
formed minds. 


According to the executive agent 
of the Kentucky Game and Fish Com 
mission more than 65,000 hunting 
licenses were isued to Kentucky 
gunners in 1921. The proceeds de- 
rived from hunting licenses, which 
costs $1 each, more than $65,000 
waa collected from the people for the 
pleasure of hunting and fishing. Be- 
sides the increase an shown in the 
umber of hunting licenses, as stat- 
ed by the executive agent, more 
game and more flim in 1921 were dis- 
tributed In every diatriyt of Ken- 
tucky than any previons year. Thisf 
is one of the lawn that should be re- 
pealed by the Legislature.

It costs $100 to make a change in 
an office clerk or similar worker, ac- 
cording to the figures of the National 
Employment Board. The losses caus- 
ed hy inexperience and errors of a 
new employe, and the time it takes 
to give instruction, are equivalent to 
that expenditure. 

People who do poor work should 
not therehy be encouraged in care- 
lessness, thinking that their employ- 
ers will put up with their mistake, 
rather than make a change. Th- 
tendency of employers i s in the op- 
posite direction. They get so disgust- 
ed with poor work that they "fire" 
amployes with little thougtht that 
. the ones who take rtwir places may 
be no batter, and will require even 
more coaching. Hut ii pays to show 
patience with any worker who man 
ifests willingness. Sometimes those 
who learn the slowest, are the most 
dependable when then working hab-

The bill, fathered by Representa-

streets. The Senate Committee on 
Public Institutions today voted to 
report the bill favorably.

Kentucky farmers are using much 
poor soil for corn production which 
if seeded to grass instead of corn 
would return them a greater profit 
and make theii farms more produc- 
tive, soils .and crops specialists at the 
College of Agriculture say. Use of 
this poor land for corn production 
is one of the principal reasons for 
the low average corn yield of the 
State, they declare. 

In 1919, the average corn yield 
for the State was only 22 bushels 
an acre. Over a ten-year period, it 
is slightly higher, being about 28 
bushels an acre. The average yield 
in the poorer counties is less than 
15 bushels an acre, this yield being 
too low to be profitable, according 
to the specialists .On the other hand 
the better corn counties of the 
State produce an average of about 
40 bushels of the grain an acre, a 
yield high enough to be profitable. 

"The labor expended in plowing, 
preparing the seed bed and cultivat- 
ing land that produces 15 bushels of 
corn an acre is practically the same 
as that required by land that pro- 
duces 50 bushels of corn an acre. 
R. E. Stephenson, a member of the 
department said. "The poor land 
will not pay tillage costs and when 
tilled is made still poorer because 
the tillages encourages leaching and 
erosion losses. 

"On the other hand, if the poor 
land is seeded to grass there are no 
tillage costs after the stand is se- 
cured. If the weeds are controlled 
and some attention given to fertiliz- 
ation, grass land usually becomes 
better while producing a pasture re- 
turn. The same poor soil if cropped 
tontinuously will produce low yields 
and grow poorer. 

"Japan clover and red top are the 
two pasture crops adapted to poor 
land. If treated with acid phosphate, 
there is no soil in the State too poor 
to grow either of these crops. The 
red top will supply May and June 
pasture while the Japan clover will 
afford good pasture during July, Au- 
gust, September and October. Five 
pounds of recleaned red top and 10 
pounds of Japan clover are about 
the proper amounts to seed. 


The new school law in Kentucky 
has become so unpopular and takes 
the school management so far away 
from the hands of the patrons of 
the rural districts that there seems 
to be a determined move upon the 
part of the members of the Legisla- 
ture, to give the people such a 
change as will place the election of 
the County Superintendents again in 
the hands of the people and give 
the trustee in each and every dis- 
trict the right to employ the teacher. 

The present system makes no one 
responsible for the failure of the 
County Superintendents to fully dis- 
charge their duties. 

There seems to be a class of peo- 
ple in Kentucky who feel that the 
masses are not qualified to govern 
themselves, but in our judgment the 
mire power placed in the hands of 
this special class the higher taxes go 
and the smaller the returns to the 

The election of officials by the pop- 
ular vote of the people keeps the of-

the public fund. This is the Demo- 
cratic form of government and there 
is no better. The man or set of men 
who think thry can improve upon it 
are wrong. — Owen County Demo-

An influenza epidemic is reported 
is London, and the medical authori-

influenza germ is of a very mild

Chilling of a new-born lambs, 
which is responsible for a heavy loss 
suffered each year by Kentucky 
sheep raisers, may be avoided by 
taking the chilled animals to the 
fire and gradually warming them 
either by placing them in warm 
water or by covering them with bran 
or cloths, sheep specialists say. Chill- 
ing is one of the most important 
points for sheep men to guard 
against during lambing season. 

"A day or two before the lamb 
is due, the ewe should be placed by 
herself so that there will be no dan- 4 
ger of injury fronl crowding, "L. J. 
Horlacher, sheep specialist at the 
College of Agriculture has empha- 
sized in suggestions to farmers. "The 
grain ration should be reduced and 
nothing but good, clean, bright hay, 
clover or alfalfa, should be fed. 

"If the ewes have plenty of ex- 
ercise during the winter and are in 
a healthy, vigorous condition, they 
will require little attention and may 
lamb in the open with safety as 
long as the weather continues to be 
mild. However, if the ewes are slug- 
gish and over-fat, the lamb may be 
weak when born and for this reason, 
it is necessary that it be assisted in 
nursing as soon as possible. 

"In cases where the ewe refuses 
to own her lamb, the difficulty may 
be overcome by drawing some of thu 
mother's milk on it. In extreme 
cases it may be necessary to tie the 
mother so that she cannot get away. 
After the young animals have nur-- 
ed a few times, they should be able 
to take care of themselves. 

"For the jirst two or three days 
after lambing, the ewe should re- 
ceive little or no grain, but should 
be given all the hay she will eat. A 
heavy grain ration may cause an ex- 
cess of milk which results in milk 
fever. About three days after the 
lambs are born, a small amount of 
grain made up of equal parts of 
oats and bran may be fed with good 
results. This should be increased 
gradually until at the end of two 
weeks the ewe is receiving 
one pound of grain a day." 

The Republican leaders are put- 
ting out claims showing that *hey 
are going to reduce the expenditures 
of the government for the year end- 
ing in 1923, by $2,000,000,000. That 
is much like counting chickens before 
they are hatched. It is one tiling to 
figuro out what the government is 
going to cosr, and another thing to 
run the government on any such 

The general sentiment ot public 
officials will be against making tbes; 
redctions. Every department w ; ll be 
disposed to feel that cutting down 
its funds work against its efficiency 
and prevent it taking up needed lines 
of work. So there will be powerful 
pressure brought to bear on Con- 
gress by department officials, not to 
reduce the appropriations as suggest- 

All kinds of political appeols and 
log rolling pulls will be worked to 
persuade the congressmen to keep 
the total up. The members will have 
their private schemes and projects 
for the benefit of their own locali- 
ties. When they get through with all 
these pork barrel plans, the reduced 
budget is likely to look very sick. 

A great deal more must be done 
for the disabled soldiers. A policy 
of economy that denies justice to the 
men who gave up their health for 
their country will be a policy of 
shame. Public sentiment seems likely 
to demand adjusted compensation 
for the service men. The fellows who 
worked for $1.00 a day in the trench 
es and camps, while others were mak- 
ing money handsomely at home, can 
not be left without further help in 
these hard times. 

When all these claims are taken 
care of, the prospective economies 
may have all disappeared into thin 
air. The administration should be 
given credit for whatever readjust- 
ment it works, but it is not entitled 
to credit for any that are just future 
pipe dreams. And often an apparent 
saving is not real, because a deficit 
has been incurred that the next con- 
gress has to make up.

Large areas if poor soils in Ken- 
tucky such as clover could be improv- 
ed for crop productiou if more leg- 
umes, such as clover, cowpeas and soy 
beans were grown on them, special- 
ists at the Colege of Agriculture say. 
At the present time, the State has 
only about one acre of legumes, not 
including Japan clover, to every 30 
acres of improved land or about one 
and one-half acres to each farm, an 
amount which is much too small to 
maintain soil fertility, the special- 
ists say. Legumes, which have been 
a neglected crop in the State up to 
the present time, are of more value 
than any other class of crops when 
the fertility of the soil is considered, 
aboir* according to the specialists. 

Red clover is to the principal leg- 
ume grown at the present time with 
soybeans second and cowpeas third. 
Japan clover gro\\> wild extensively 
in the State and is sometimes seed- 
ed. Alfalfa is grown largely in two 
counties while several others have 
small areas. Sweet and alsike clover 
complete the legumes used by far- 
mers in the State. 

The chief advantage of legumes 
is the fact that they replenish the 
nitrogen supply of poor soils, the 
specialists say. As soon as the nit- 
rogen supply has been furnished, the 
soils respond to treatment with phos- 
phate fertilizers, thus making it pos- 
sible for the farmer to rebuild them 
to a point where they produce larg- 
er crop yields. 

The State should have at least 1,- 
600,00 acres of clover alone for nay

The Enquirer in commenting on 
»n address made by Senator A. O. 
Stanley, on the subject 'The Con- 
stitution*' says in part: 

Aroused into action by the vivid 
consciousness of the fact that the 
tendency toward centralization of 
government, is threatening the abol- 
ition of the autonomy of the state, 
which can only mean the destruction 
of the liberty of the citizen and the 
ending of the life of the republic, 
United States Senator Augustus O. 
Stanley, of Kentucky, recently be- 
fore a gathering of 500 members of 
"the business community of Chicago, 
delivered what well may be described 
•as one of the master arguments in 
support of the Federal Constitution. 
As an historical and legal analysis 
of American Government, it ranks 
as a classic, and as a review of the 
origin and growth of Anglo-Saxon 
4aw in concise and succinct terms it 
'easily deserves the title of a final 
authority. Viewed as a prophecy of 
•conditions to come unless the old 
charted course of the fathers, is 
steered, it is alarming because of the 
conviction it carries. 

In the main it is a philippic against 
'the invasion of personal rights, the 
home dwelling and the affairs of 
business in general by clouds of 
spies, armed officials and prying in- 
spectors, and the taking upon itself 
by the Federal Government of the 
regulation, restriction and supervis- 
ion of almost every walk of life. 
With Edmund Burke, the Kentucky 
•statesman believes that "all innova- 
tion is not progress," and he hurls 
Jus matchless mind and eloquent 
voice against the despots of today.

Be very careful in stripping you tobacco, keeping 
i each grade to itself, both in regard to color, length 
i and texture, for on the grading depends, to a very 
• great extent, the price. 

Be sure that you have each grade on separate sticks. 
Don't mix the grades on the sticks, as tobacco will be 
"stick graded" and the lowest grade on the stick will 
govern the grade. 

$ The same thing applies to the hand, 
grades in the hand. 

Do not mix 

Do not hang your sticks too full. Eighteen to twen- 
ty hands keeps your tobacco straight when you bulk it. 

When you get through stripping a crop you are 
ready to deliver. and not before. 

The whole crop must be delivered ^the same day, or 
ail of each grade. That is, if you cannot haul all of 
your crop, you must deliver all of each grade when 
you start delivery. 

There are always two "grades" in each grade, tor 
instance ; "Trash 1st and 2nd." Leaf, lugs and all 
grades have first and second, so keep them separate.

Some Aspects of the 
Farmers' Problems 


ited from Atlantic Monthly) 

tag to. take the un.i .able chance 
if the favorable one iruw is thelra and 
they can retain for themselves a part 
of the service charges that are uni- 
form, in good years and bad, with 
high price* nuu !vn. ■»**> 

While, in the main, the farmer mnst 
sell, regardless of market conditions, 
at the time of the maturity of crops, 
he cannot suspend production In toto. 
lie must go on producing if he is to go 
on living, and if the world Is to exist. 
The most he can do is to curtail pro- 
duction a little or alter Its form, and 
that — because he Is In the dark as to 
the probable demand for his goods — 
may be only to Jump from the frying 
pan into the fire, taking the consumer 
with him. 

Even the dairy farmers, whose out- 
put Is not seasonal, complain that they 
find themseiv^l at a disadvantage Id 
the marketing of their productions, 
especially raw milk, because of the 
high costs of distribution, which they 
must ultimately bear. 


Now that the farmers are stirring, 
thinking, and uniting as never before 
to eradicate these inequalities, they 
are subjected to atern economic lec- 
tures, and are met with the accusation 
that they are demanding, and are the 
recipients of, special privileges. Let 
us see what privileges the government 
has conferred on the farmers. Much 
has been made of Section 6 of the 
Clayton Anti-Trust Act, which pur- 
ported to permit them to combine with 
immunity, under certain conditions. 
Admitting that, nominally, this ex- 
emption was in the nature of a special 
privilege, — though I think It was so In 
appearance rather than In fact, — we 
find that the courts have nullified It 
by Judicial Interpretation. Why should 
not the farmers be permitted to ac- 
complish by co-operative methods what 
other businesses are already doing by 
co-operation in the form of Incorpora- 
tion? If it be proper for men to form, 
by fusion of existing corporations or 
otherwise, a corporation that controls 
the entire production of a commodity, 
or a large part of it, why Is It not 
proper for a group of farmers to unite 
for the marketing of their common 
products, either In one or in several 
selling agencies? Why should It be 
right for a hundred thousand corporate 
shareholders to direct 25 or 30 or 40 
per cent of an Industry, and wrong for 
a hundred thousand co-operative 
farmers to control a no larger propor- 
tion of the wheat crop, or cotton, of 
any other product? 

The Department of Agriculture la 
often spoken of as a special concession 
to the farmers, but In its commercial 
results, it is of as much benefit to the 
buyers and consumers of agricultural 
products as to the producers, or even 
more. I do not suppose that anyone 
opposes the benefits that the farmers 
derive from the educational and re- 
search work of the department, or the 
help that It gives them, in working out 
improved cultural methods and prac- 
tices, In developing better yielding va- 
rieties through breeding and selection, 
in Introducing new varieties from re- 
mote parts of the world and adapting 
them to our climatr and economic con- 
dition, and in devising practical meas- 
ures for the elimination or control of 
dangerous and destructive animal and 
plant diseases, insect pests, and the 
like. All these things manifestly tend 
to stimulate and enlarge production, 
and their general beneficial effects are 

It is complained that, whereas the 
law restricts Federal Reserve banks 
to three months' time for commercial 
paper, the farmer is allowed six 
months on his notes. This Is not a 
special privilege, but merely such a 
recognition of business conditions as 
makes it possible for country banks 
to do business with country people. 
The crop farmer has only one turn- 
over a year, while the merchant and 
manufacturer have many. Incidental- 
ly, I note that the Federal Reserve 
Board has just authorized the Fed- 
eral Reserve banks to discount export 
papfr for a period of six months, to 
conform to the nature of tin: busi- 

The Farm Loan banks are pointed 
to as an Instance of special govern 
ment favor for farmers.* Are they not 
rather the outcome of laudable efforts 
to equalize rural 'arfd urban condi- 
tions? And about all the government 
does there is to help set up an nd 
ministratlve organization and lend a 
little credit at the start. Eventually 
the f»mers will provide nil the capi- 
tal and carry all the liabilities them 
selves. It la true that Farm Loan 
bonds are tax exempt ; but so are 
bonds of municipal light und traction 
plants, and new housing Is to be ex- 
empt from taxation, In New York, for 
ten years. 

On the other hand, the fanner reads 
of plana for municipal housing proj- 
ects that run Into the billions, of linn 
dreda of millions annually spent on 
the merchant marine; he reads that 
the railways are 1 being favored with 
Increased rates and virtual guarantiee* 
of earnings by the government, with 

country as a whole, but what can be 
of more general benefit than encour- 
agement of ample production of the 
principal necessaries of life and their 
even flow from contented producers to 
satisfied consumers? 

While it may be conceded that 
special governmental aid may be nec- 
essary In the general Interest, we must 
all agree that it is difficult to see why 
agriculture and the production and dia- 
tribution of farm products are not ac- 
corded the same opportunities that are 
provided for other businesses ; espe- 
cially as the enjoyment by the farmer 
of such opportunities would appear to 
be even more contributory to the a*n- 
era] good than in the case of other 
industries. The spirit of American 
democracy is unalterably opposed, 
alike to enacted special privilege and 
to the special privilege of unequal op- 
portunity that arlaea automatically 
from the failure to correct glaring 
economic inequalities. I am opposed 
to the injection of government into 
business, but I do believe that it is an 
essential function of democratic gov- 
ernment to equalize opportunity ao 
far as it is within its power to do so, 
whether by the repeal of archaic 
statutes or the enactment of modern 
ones. If the anti-trust laws keep the 
farmers from endeavoring scientifically 
'to Integrate their Industry while other 
Industries find a way to meet modem 
conditions without violating such stat- 
utes, then it would seem reasonable 
to find a way for the farmers to meet 
them under the same conditions. The 
law should operate equally in fact. Re- 
pairing the economic structure on one 
side is no injustice to the other side, 
which is In good repair. 

We have traveled a long way from 
the old conception of government as 
merely a defensive and policing agency ; 
and regulative, corrective, or equaliz- 
ing legislation, which apparently is of 
a special nature. Is often of the most 
general beneficial consequences. Even 
the First Congress passed a tariff act 

to political autocracy, whether at- 
tempted by rural or by urban Industry. 

For lack of united effort the farmers 
as a whole are sti'l marketing their 
crops by antiquated methods, or by, no 
methods at all. but they uresurroutftleii 
by n business world that has beeu 
modernized to the last minute and Is 
tirelessly striving for efficiency. This 
efficiency Is due In hirjje measure to 
big business, to milted business, to in- 
tegrated business. The fanners now 
seek the benefits of such largeness, un- 
ion and integration. 

The American farmer Is a modern of 
the moderns in the use of labor saving 
machinery, and he has made vast 
strides in recent years in scientific 
tillage and efficient farm management, 
but as a business In contact with other 
businesses aglrculture Is a "one horse 
shay" in competition with high power 
automobiles. The American farmer la 
the greatest and most ihtrnctnhle of 
Individualists. While Industrial pro- 
duction and all phases of the huge com- 
mercial mechanism and its myriad ac- 
cessories hnve articulated and co-ordi- 
nated themselves all the way from nat- 
ural raw materials to retail sales, the 
business of agriculture lias gone on in 
much the one man fashion of the back- 
woods of the first part of the nine- 
teenth centunr. when the farmer was

Sarah Simpson was born in Ohio, 
October 28, 1834, and passed away 
at her home Jan. 9th, 1922, aged 87 
years two months and twelve days. 
She was the eldest child of a large 
family and early learned to work, 
as long as her strength permitted 
she worked. She united with the 
church in Spencer county, Indiana, 
in her girlhood days and remained a 
life long member. But of late years 

and talked to her Savior. He seemed 
very near to her, especially since the 
death of her husband theree years 
ago. She was married to Sam Davis 
and two children were born to them, 
James Davis and Mrs. Matilda Scud- 
der. She was again married to Wm. 
E. Brady and eight children were 
born to them, six sons and two daugh- 
ters, two sons having died in infancy 
and one daughter died eleven years 
ago. Mrs. Brady was a good mother 
and a good neighbor, and nothing 
better can be said of any one. It is 
hard to give up mother but she has 
been here to love and care for these 
children more than the allotted three 
score years and ten. God's will be 
done. • 

She leaves to mourn her death one 
that was avowedly for the protection daughter, Mrs. Matilda Scudder by 

of manufacturers; but a protective 
tariff always has been defended as a 
means of promoting the general good 
through n nanH/<ii|ar approach; and 
the statute books are filled with acts 
for the benefit of shipping, commerce, 
and labor. 


Now, what Is the farmer asking? 
Without trying to catalogue the re- 
medial measures that have been sug- 
gested In his behalf, the principal pro- 
posals that bear directly on the im- 
provement of his distributing and mar- 
keting relations may be summarized as 
follows : — 

First: storage warehouses for cot- 
ton, wool, and tobacco, and elevators 
for grain, of sufficient capacity to meet 
the maximum demand on them at the 
peak of the marketing period. The 
farmer thinks that either private capi- 
tal must furnish these facilities, or the 
state must erect and own the eleva- 
tors and warehouses. 

Second: weighing and grading of 
agricultural products, and certification 
thereof, to be done by Impartial and 
disinterested public Inspectors (this Is 
already accomplished to some extent 
by the federal licensing of weighers 
and graders), to eliminate underpay- 
ing, overcharging, and unfair grading, 
and to facilitate the utilization of the 
stored products as the basis of credit. 

Third : a certainty of credit sufficient 
to enable the marketing of products 
In an orderly manner. 

Fourth: the Department of Agricul- 
ture should collect, tabulate, summa- 
rize, and regularly and frequently pub- 
lish and distribute to the farmers, full 
Information from all the markets of 
the world, so that they shall be as well 
Informed of their selling position as 
buyers now are of their buying posi- 

Fifth : freedom to Integrate the busi- 
ness of agriculture by means of con- 
solidated selling agencies, co-ordinat- 
ing and co-operating in such way as to 
put the farmer on an equal footing 
with the large buyers of his products, 
and with commercial relations In other 

When a business requires specialized 
talent, It has to b»y it. So will the 
farmers; nncrperhapa the heat way for 
them to get It would be to utilize some 
ef the present machinery of the lurg- 
est established agencies dealing In 
farm products. Of course, If he wishes, 
the farmer may go further and engage 
In flour-milling and other manufactures 
of food products. In my opinion, 
however, he would be wise to stop 
short of that. Public Interest may be 
opposed to all great Integrations; but 
In Justice, should they be forbidden to 
the farmer and permitted to others? 
The corporate form <>f association can- 
not now be wholly adapted to his ob- 
jects and conditions. The looser co _

borrow in just a little better condi-

while the days are short and the

will soon be long and the nights 
short and we will not have the time. 
The first thought I want to bring 
i, from the Bible, "No man liveth 
unto himself and no man dieth unto 
himself." The natural man loves fel- 
lowship and loves to cooperate with 
his fellowman in every good word 
and work, it is the sub-normal man

by and receive the good accomplished 
by the strenious efforts of his neigh- 
bors and never lend a helping hand, 
sit idly by while his neighbors are , 
trying to build a good road, m front

are laboring, toiling to better the liv-

ually receiving and appropriating 
the goad things of life and never 
giving for the benefit of others, this 
kind of a man may make a .success 
in life as far as accumulating money, 
but we- are not born in this world for 
the sole purpose of making money, 
"although most of us live as though

to render an account at the great 
judgment, not alone for the dollars

The shirker is a degraded type of 
humanity. No matter how appealing 
a cause may be, how it may affect 
the progress of mankind, it is only 
his purpose to shift tire responsibil- 
ity onto some one else and escape 
the entire burden. 

The shirker likes to receive bene- 
fits, the benefit* of the home, of the 
community lile. of the national life, 
of the church, the school, but he dis- 
likes to bother about conferring ben- 
efits. He admires the good things of 
life, but he has no will or desire to 
escape them. 

Tho shirker is a parasite, the 
meanest thing in nature, drawing its 
life-blood from nobler forms of life.* 
Of course it is entirely dependent, 
drawing a pension without merit 
and hardly a feeling of gratitude. 

No wonder the shirker becomes so 
complete a degenerate. He fulfills 
no law of life or growth. "That which 
he hath is taken away from him.

Lord has a use for almost everything

his character, we can but trust that 
some thing worth while will remain, 
and that this something can be used 
in the construction of the living tem-

W. W. Gaine« Review* 1821, Which, 
He Declare., Saw Un.haekling of 
The City'* Educational Sy»tem. 

We own nothing" what we have 
in money, intellect, prestage and in- 
fluence is a loan we must pay back 
with interest. The man with one tal- 
ent hid it and returned it, but not 
with interest, and was condemned. 
Where the man with five used his 
and gained another five and was 
commended, not because of the 
amount, but the use made of it. 

How are we using the loan? using 
it in selfish interest, thereby cover- 
ing it up under fine buildings, under 
acres and acres of fine land/trodden 
over With fine horses, cattle Ac, all 
of which will perish with the using, 
and your talent be returned without 
having accumulated anything worth 
while. For nothing counts only what 
has been gained in unselfish endeav- 
or for the good of all. I did not start 
to write a sermon, I started to write 
on the road question but have been 
led along this line and if we could 
only get every one to realize their 
personal responsibility for the use 
of any talents that has been loaned 
to them, the road question as well 
as all others, would soon be solved. 
If this bon-owed tool is not as ef- 
ficient as you would like don't jump 
on it with a sledge hammer and de- 
molish it. It is not yours or mine, it 
is borrowed. These high ideals never 
could have originated in my poor, 
weak brain, they are borrowed. It 
is your duty as well as mine to 
brighten them, where rusty, and 
strengthen them where weak, and 
make them more efficient for plow- 
ing out the ditches, scarifying and 
rolling out the bumps on these cross 
roads and concreting the Dixie 
Highway. We will all go gliding on 
as smoothly as possible to receive the 
reward that is sure to be meeted out 
>to all of us, not so much for what 
we have accomplished collectively, 
but what we have done individually, 
answering for our own deeds and 
not <or another. The best means of 
polishing this rusty plow share of 
progress "grown rusty for Jack of 
use" is to polish it with gold dollars, 
the more gold dollars used the 
brighter it will shine, the more effi- 
cient it will become and every dol- 
lar put into public improvements, 
like the Dixie Highway, will last as 
long as the government lasts for the 
government has agreed to keep it in 
repair for all time to come. The 
government will last as long as wo 
continue to elect christian men of 
moral stamina at the head, men who 
will stand four square for the prin- 
ciples of our pilgram Fore Fathers. 
Now if you want to do something 
with' those gold dollars that will last 
and 1 prove a blessing to you and to 
your children, down through all 
time,, put some of them in the Dixie 
Highway. You can not take them to 
Heaven with you and if you could 
they would be of no use to buy con- 
crete there, for the Rtreets are al- 
ready paved with gold and if you 
should miss Heaven your life has 
been a total failure, your gold wi 
not stand the fervent heat, nor all 
of the fine horses, cattle and broad 
acres of land will not buy one drop 
of told water to cool the parched 
tongue. To those of us who haven't 
much gold to put into the Dixie High 
way. How are *e going to get it? 1

1,007 Teacher*. 
"We have now 1,007 teachers in 
our schools. We have had to add 146 
teachers -since September 1st. Our 
monthly payroll amounts to $130,- 
000, an increase of $25,000 over 
that of a year ago. This larger 
amount is accounted for first by the 
fact of our having a larger number 
of teachers made necessary by the 
increased attendance, and secondly, 
by the fact of automatic increases 
in the salaries of many teachers. We 
have a rule that teachers who have 
been with the system a sufficient 
number of years and who have done 
a prescribed amount of normal 
work shall receive automatic increas- 
es in salary. This rule is an encour- 
agement for efficiency in our teach- 
ers. We should maintain a high stan- 
dard for our public school teachers. 
The entrance requirements to the 
system should be high. It is an in- 
justice to the child not to have cap- 
able and efficient teachers. And of 
course no one should be permitted 
tp teach who does not believe in the 
public schools 
to them."

' Editor Boon* County Recorder: 
Burlington, Ky. 

Dear Sir:— Please find enclose! 
check for $3.00 for one year's sub- 
script^ to your P»P er -°" e T ^ r 
Mrs, John Black, one for B. N. Tan- 
ner, all of Fayete, Mo. We are al- 
ways anxions to heac from o'ir oil 
Boone co •■ ty friends, and by tak- 
ing the Recorder we can hear from 
them each week. - ' 

Fifty-three years ago I left my j 
old home near Florence, Boone coun- | 
ty Ky., and have lived in Howard | 
county ever since. This is a grand 
old State. I think Howard county 
one of the best counties in the state, 
strictly Democratic and the best peo- 
ple in the world, most of them are 
christian people. _ . 

I have mingled with the Methodist 
church South for the last fifty years, 
and I superintended Sabbath school 
for twenty years. We have in our 
church 650 members; we have in our 
Bible class 102 members. If the 
weather is not too bad, I am to my 
Bible class every Sunday. We have 
a nice parsonage for our pastor, fur- 
nished nicely, we pay him $3,000 per 
year. Since I moved here I lived on 
my farm 49 years; I am now living 
in Fayete, Mo., one of the best 
towns in the State. It is surely a 
fine school town. We have Central 
College three or four hundred stu- 
dents, turns out ten or fifteen 
preachers every year; also Howard 
Payne college, for girls, about four 
hundred. Both colleges are run by 
the M. E. church. We have a public 
school with about six hundred schol- 
ars, a great many children come m 
from the country. 

Since I came here I have had my 
ups and downs, my losses and mis- 
fortunes; after all I must not com- 
plain. The Lord has been good to 
me from the earliest period of my 
life, down to this moment, and has 
blessed me in so many ways. I have 
three sons who live in Oklahoma, one 
daughter in Dallas Texas, and one in 
Lewistown, Mo. My youngest son and 
wife live with me; my oldest daugh- 

all do- 
ing well and have their own homes, 
and their automobiles. 

I made a visit to my old home in \ 
Kentucky over a year ago. While 
there I found nearly all of my rela- 
tives and old friends have passed 
away to the Great Beyond never to 
return again, so let us remember, 
that we, soon or late will pass away, 
and may God help us to be ready 
when we are called to die. 

I will always remember my old 
friends and relatives with kindest 
and best wishes. May they live long 
and ever be happy. Best wishes to 
the Recorder. 

composed of Grant, and Boone, has 
I started something new in so far as 
Grant county is concerned, in pub- 
llishing a letter to his constituents 
1 asking them to express their desires 
• concerning certain important legisla- 
i tion which is certain to come before 
the present term of the General As- 
I sembly. Mr. Tolin is to be commend- 
ed for his course of procedure. We 
have already heard a number of cit- 
izens say that they intended taking 
him at his word and writing him 
their views. It is a mighty good 
thing to know that we have a rep- 
resentative in at least one branch of 
the legislature who is willing to do 
what the people who sent him there 
I want done, and who will try to find 
! out what they want done before do- i 
mg it. It gives the people a chance, 
land this is a good deal more than 
I they have had for a long time. Mr. 
Tolin may or may not be a man of 
considerable weight in the State's 
lawmaking body, but one thing is 
sure, he is starting off well, and a 
good start is at least half of the race.

Mr. Nelson said that it is always,

Washington, D. C, Jan. 31. — 
With the seating of Truman H. New- 
berry as Senator from Michigan, the 
malodorous Newberry case now goes 
to the people on appeal, and, as pre- 
dicted by Chairman Cordell Hull of 
the eDmocratic National Committee 
the Democratic National Committee 
scandal will become burning issues 
in the states and in the nation." 

The main question before the Sen- 
ate in the Newberry case was: "Are

The Republican majority, alter 
three years of cool deliberation has 
answered in the affirmative. 

The main question now before the 
people in the Newberry case is: 
"Shall the people condone the act of 
a Republican majority of the Senate 
of putting a 'Pay As You Enter sign 
over the Senate chamber?" 

In Democratic circles, the seating 
of Senator Newberry is regarded as 
a great personal victory for Presi-

was pending in the Senate, showed 
much social attention to Senator

cents, if the tax bill being prepared 
by the House Tax Committee is pass- 
ed, it became known here. 

The rate on intangibles is expect- 
ed to be increased from 40 cents to 
60 cents on $100. There probably 
will be no change in the rate on bank 
deposits and live stock, which now 
pay 10 cents on $100. 

The bill, which has been under 
preparation almost since the forma- 
tion of the <s/«ximittee, of which W. 
G. Wheeler, of Warren county, is 
Chairman, will carry out the idea 
with which the present Assembly 
came here — reduction of the burden 
of taxes under which "the farmer 
of the state is groaning." 

"The bill will mean a decided re- 
duction in taxes," said a member of 
the committee. "If we can put it 
through— and I believe we can — it 
will mean relief to the owner of 
real estate, and also will aid coun- 
ties. 1

Washington, D. C. — Official police 
records early placed the known dead 
in the Knickerbocker Theater dis- 
aster at 107. 

The' 11»{ of injured stood st 134, 
with 14 listed as "seriously injured." 
The official list, according to auth- 
orities, contained the names of all 
those whose bodies had been recov- 
ered up to midnight 

The volunteer workers, including 
police, Bremen, marines and cavalry 
from Ft. Myer, virtually had con- 
cluded their search of the wreckage 
at midnight, the only portion of 
what had been the orchestra remain- 
ing to be searched being a far cor- 
ner, in which it was not expected ad- 
ditional bodies would be found. 

AH of the eastern states were 
covered with a blanket of snow two 
feet deep, and the weight of the 
snow on the roof of the theater 
caused it to collapse. 

Under Angel'. Wing 
Sleeping peacefully beneath the 
debris in the wrecked Knickerbocker 
Theater, two girls, approximately 4 
and 6 years, were found by rescuers, 
ten hours after the playhouse roof 
had fallen. Apparently, neither of 
the children was hurt severely. They 
were taken to a hospital without 

Four hours earlier a five-year-old 
girl was found unhurt, seated be- 
tween the bodies of two women. Her 
life evidently had been saved by fall- 
ing between the seats and the pro- 
tection given to her by the bodies of 
two women, who were killed beside 

The last person to be taken from 
the ruins was Dr. Scott Montgomery, 
of Washington, who was rescued 12 
hours after the roof collapsed. He 
was pinned by his legs underneath a 
beam, which killed a young woman 
whom he had escorted to the theater. 
The beam was part of the struc- 
ture of the balcony and literally was 
a key log in the jam above him. It 
took hours to assemble the hydrau- 
lic jacks from the navy yard, which 
were the only things adequate t» 
lift the heavy weight the necessary 
distance to free him. 

Physicians plied him with restor- 
atives during the night, but he died 
soon after he was taken from the 

ing plenty of healthy, sticky plant.3 
to set the crop at the most favorable 
time, specialists in the crop say. In- 
cluded among the requirements for 
such plants are an application of 
comercial fertilizer for the plant bed 
a bed composed of . rich, fresh soil, 
thorough sterilization of the bed, 
and early seeding, according to E. J. 
Kinney, tobacco specialist at the 
Kentucky Agricultural Experiment 

"Two pounds for 30 feet of bed 
nine feet wide or two pounds for 
each square rod of the bed of a fer- 
tilize! „..-. , .7»»k about three per 
cent nitrogen, eight per cent phos- 
phoric acid and three percent pot- 
ash makes a satisfactory application, 
"Mr. Kiney said." The fertilizer may 
be applied after the bed is burned 
and should be raked into the soil 
thoroughly. In case the plants do 
not seem to be growing well, it has 
been found that an additional fer- 
tilization with nitrate of soda pro- 
duces satisfactory results. Ten lb*., 
of the nitrate should be dissolved in 
a barel of water and about five gal- 
lons' of this mixture applied to each 
200 square feet of the bed. It is a 
good plan to follow the application 
of the nitrate with clear water as 
the small plans may be injured by 
the solution sticking to the leaves. 
In sections of Western Ken- 1 

particularly desperate and daring 
thieves have specialized in this field. 
Less picturesque than the banditry 
that once flourished in the mountain 
fastness of Italy and Spain and 
which is at this day Languishing as a 
trade even in Mexico, these Ameri- 
can brigands execute their weljplan- 
ned plundering expeditions with a 
thoroughness and ruthlessness that 
make the old-time highwaymen seem 
like bungling and soft-hearted ame- 

If crimes of this sort are allowed 
to continue — and continue increas- 
ing in frequency and fatility — our 
industrial communities will wtness a 
veritable reign of terror. That such 
robberies should be possible is a 
reflection on our civilization and on 
our financial Intel^^fenct. Why 

should not the contents of the pay 
envelope have the same advantages 
of security and convenience in trans- 
fer that all other payments have in 
this day and age? Is there any good 
reason why wages, as well as salaries 
and payment.- for moterial and sup- 
plier should noi i.o made by check? 
The toting of thousands of dol- 
lars .through the streets in cash is 
an actual temptation to crime. It 
was to guard against theft of money 
in transit that checks and ^ r afts 
were invented about 500 years ago.

Representative J. H. Johnson, Re- 
publican representative from Breath- 
itt and Lee counties, was unseated 
and Bryce Cundiff, Democrat seated 
in his stead, by a strctly party vote 
of 62 to 30. The evidence showed 
that the election was so corrupt that 
the Republicans wanted the House 
of Representatives to declare that 
no election had been held and that a 
special election be called, and a suc- 
cessor be elected to Mr. Johnson. 
The state Senate refused to unseat 
William Wallace, Republican, of 
Richmond, notwithstanding the fact 
that the contest was instituted by a 
Democrat, R. C. Oldham, of Rich- 
mond. The contest was based entirely 
on technical grounds. In this the Sen- 
ate was right, a Senator should not 
lose his seat in a contest when there 
has been a fair election, altho there 
may have been technical errors, so 
long as the vote there has been no 
fraud. It can not be said that, in 
these two counties, the members of 
the General Assembly acted for pure- 
ly political purposes, if so, Senator 
Wallace would have been unseated, 
as the Senate is so close that the 
Democrats would be in a better posi- 
tion, politically, if a Democrat had 
been seated in place of Senator Wal- 
lace. In the Johnson-Cundiff contest, 
if reports are true, the frauds per- 
petrated in that election could only 
be compared with the frauds prct- 
iced in an election held in Louisville 
not so many years ago. 

the bed is in a small clearing in the 
woodland. An old fence row fre- 
quently is used or a good piece of 
heavy sod hind where no new land 
is available. In the White Burley 
section of the State, most beds are 
made on old blue grass sod land. 

"Thorough sterilisation of the 
plant bed to kill weed seeds is an 
important step in securing strong 
plants. A better method of steriliz- 
ing than burning and one which does 
not require the use of wood is steam 
sterilization. This is practiced quite 
extensively in parts of Western Ken- 
tucky and if gaining favor in the 
Burley section. Sterilization of the 
beds is best done in the spring. 

"The beds should be seeded just 
as early in the spring as the ground 
can be worked. In many seasons, it 
is possible to sow the seed in Febru- 
ary. A level teaspoonful for each 
100 square feet of bed will give a 
thick stand and insure strong, and 
healthy plants."

mation concerning the experiences 
of the station in managing tobacco 
plant beds may secure it by writing

experience, it is not "money" but 
credit that is really transferred in 
the payment of wages, as in the 
payment of all other debts. Why 
should we remain 500 years behind 
i the times in this matter? Is it part of 
the pernicious perpetuation of the 
money myth?

The county examination was held 
at the High School building, last Fri-

of students were present, twelve of

The Scot tragedy, "Macbeth," re- 
ceived an impressive interpretation 
at the hands of Waltes Hampden 
and his associate players at the Shu- 
bert Theater last Thursday. As the 
over-ambitious Macbeth, spurred on 
to higher titles than the one bestow- 
ed upon him hy King Duncan for hi.-, 
valorous conduct on the field of bat- 
tle, Walter Hampden is the acme of 
histrionic perfection, reading the 
beautiful Shakespearean lines with 
clear diction and portraying the 
character of tha conscience-stricken 
monarch with remarkable conviction. 

Mary Hall was superb in the role 
of Lady Macbeth, who urges her 
husband to deeds of treachery in or- 
der that her ambition to become 
Queen may be satisfied. Her artistic 
acting in the scene in which she in- 
duces Macbeth to slay the sleeping 
King, who is spending the night at 
their castle, commanded respect and 
won the high approval of a discrim- 
inating audience. 

Much might be said about the stag

usual Hampden standard of « excel-

The necessary size of the cistern 
will depend on the amount of water 
used by the family, the annual rain- 
fall in the locality and the size of 
the contributing roof area. General- 
ly speaking, in this State a cistern 
should hold about two months' sup- 
ply of water. • 

The cistern may be built of con- 
crete or cemented brick, but in eith- 
er case it must be water-tight, not 
only o prevent the loss of the stor- 
ed water, but to prevent the entrance 
of ground waer. If the cistern is 
built of concrete and the surround- 
ing soil is loose and exerts a decided 
pressure on the walls, the bitter 
should be reinforced close to the 

Roofs, particularly shingle roofs, 
collect much dust and dirt from the 
roads, and gutters and eave troughs 
are often filled with leaves, dirt and 
bird droppings. It is extremely im- 
portant that a switch and bypass be 
provided on the rain water pipe, so 
that, at the beginning of rains, the 
filth from the roof may be drained 
to the outside before any rain wat- 
er is admitted to the cistern. 

In addition to keeping out the 
first washings from the roof, it is 
advisable to construct a small filter. 
This filter is placed outside the cis- 
tern and is a brick or concrete box 
containing gravel, sand and char- 
cial, the water passing through it be- 
fore entering the cistern. 

To protect further the users' of 
the water, hypochlorite of lime — one 
ounce to 5,000 gallons of water — 
should be put in the cistern at fre- 
quent intervals.

i iiinltn te>i a week'* ttrm of th 
Meade rottntj circuit court 

(Indianapolis News.) 
Many persons who are raising their 
voices in protest against the use of 
tobacco'Dy women had grandmothers 
who smoked. The grandmothers did 
not smoke to be fashionable or 
sporty. They used a clay pipe with 
a reed stem and the tobacco was 
long green. After it had been cured 
by hanging in the barn or the smoke 
house, it was ready for use. If there 
were objections to tobacco smoke in 
the sitting room, grandmother went 
to the kitchen where she lit her pipe 
with a live coal. She smoked solely 
because she liked it. 

There came a time when women 
shunned tobacco, but now some of 
the stores are showing pipes for wo- 
men. They come in little velvet lined 
cases and have push bits so they 
can be unjointed and packed away 
in a Bmall space. A dispatch from 
New York says that women are 
smoking long slim cigars. Tobacco is 
tobacco, regardless of the form in 
which it is used. It may be wrapped 
in tobacco and called a cigar, or it 
may have a paper wrapper and be 
known as a cigarette. It can be 
smoked in a pipe or chewed, and 
years ago it was pulverized and pop- 
plarized in the form of snuff. Per- 
haps some of the young women who 
are learning to smoke, not because 
they like it, but because they think 
that it is smart, are reverting to the 
days of their grandmothers.

Let our membership motto for the 
year 1922, be, "I will not criticize 
or condemn the Boone County Farm 
Bureau for failure to get results I 
desire accomplished, unless I, my- 
self, have personally giv«n time, 
thought and effort to help get re- 
sults therefore." 

»«u are supposed to pay your dues 
'to the Farm Bureau before asking 
benefits of it, as your dues are the 
only finance we have. 

There never was a time when 
. there was greater need for the Farm 
Bureau people to stand shoulder to 
shoulder, than there is today. It is 
an organization to help us help our- 
selves in an organized way, and the 
individual member must feel that he 
*as a duty to perform in helping 
peril himself out of this terrible con- 
dition, in which agriculture now 
finds itself. It is hard to tell [u*t 
when the condition is going to fret 
better. Oft times it is darkest, just 
before the dawn. This responsibility 
is upon each one of us. During the 
next year we must solidify the Farm 
Bureau Organization and present a 
jointed phalanx of loyal members, 
ready to move forward wherever the 
armor of justice leads them. Every 
member of the Farm Bureau must 
find his own particular work to do 
and do it. That is the chief respon- 
sibility of more than a million far- 
mers in this nation, who make up 
the Farm Bureau Federation. 
*T'r , r , f* 

Practically every Farm Bureau 
member is talking co-operative buy- 
ing and selling these days, and es- 
pecially, should we stress the latter 
when we take into consideration the 
almost ruinous prices farm products 
■are bringing. Unquestionably we can 
saeirrc a better market for the things 
we labor so hard to produce, if we 
act as a body, and not as an indi- 


Ask your neighbors to join the 
-Harm fcvrrcau. We are asking each of 
"out members to invite their neigh- 
bor^ anc I friends to join the Boone 
Contoy Farm Bureau. We feel i t is 
the daty of every member to give 
his ne.ghbor and friends this oppor- 
tunity and privilege of becoming af- 
filiated with our organization. Cer- 
tainly ever man i s interested in the 
development of his community. This 
-can only be accomplished through 
organization and close co-operation 
Jith yur neighbor. It can best be 
done by beaming a member of the 
rarm Bureau. 

Let every member be a booster of 
the Farm Bureau and add four 
hundred new members by July 1, 
i»~~. Let this be our Spring Cam- 
paign Slogan. fc

'We had problems to solve, but we 
worked to win. 

If you were not a member vou 
should have been. 

So a new resolution to you we 
suggest, Join the Farm Bureau and 
help yourself. 

In so doing you will help to win 
the fight for the things that are just 
and fair and right. 

Don't sit on the side lines and 
boast and knock, while we grow as 
strong as Gibralter Rock. 

But instead, be a booster and pull 
with your might, it will encourage 
the cause and help a sight. 

Remember the motto of our State 
so grand, "Divided we fall, United 
we stand. 

So the thing to do is to make a 
vow to come in— AND DO IT NOW. 

Highway ronstruction will not be 
i delayed by the requirements of the 
new Federal highway act. The Fed- 
eral highway system will consist of 
roads not exceeding 7 per cent of 
the total in any State, designated by 
the State and approved by the Sec- 
retary of Agriculture. Work is be- 
ing rushed by all the highway de- 
partments on the preparation of 
maps of the proposed system, but nat 
urally such an important matter will 
take some little time and consider- 
ation. The Government authorities 
will insist that Important through 
routes meet at State lineB which will 
require conferences between auth- 
orities of different States. 

In order that work will not be de- 
layed pending the approval of each 
State system the Secretary of Agri- 
culture has amended the Rules and 
Regulations for Federal A^d to per- 
mit the immediate construction of 
such roads as it may reasonably be 
anticipated will become part of the 

State highway officials are being 
advised that the anticipated route of 
which the road to be built is a part 
should be as long as practicable, pre- 
ferably entirely across the State. A 
map must be submitted showing the 
route, other possible routes and con- 
necting routes. If this is found sat- 
isfactory the project will be ap- 
proved for immediate construction. 
The State of Washington submit- 
ted on December 27 the first com- 
plete State system, and others are 
expected in a short time. 


There is now a recognized "horse 
/.one" where short hauls and frequent 
slops are necessary In both city and 
country Into which the truck and 
tractor cannot enter and compete 
with the horse without loss to the 
merchant and the farmer. After a 
costly experiment the hone la com- 
ing into his own, displacing the 
motorized truck and tractor, partic- 
ularly on the farm, where it haa been 
conclusively demonstrated that there 
Is economy In breeding a suitable type 
of horse for a varied agricultural 

At a recent meeting in Chicago of 
the Horse Association of America, H 
C Taylor, Chief of the Federal 
Bureau of Farm Markets, presented 
som,e interesting figures, the" result 
of official Investigations, proving that 
horses are more economical in every 
field of operation on farms than the 
motorized tractor or truck. 

Computed on 1921 feed prices, the 
cost of power per acre, according to 
the U. S. Department findings, is $1.37 
for plowing 4rrtL Worses as compared 
with *1.72 with tractors; disking, 34c 
with horses and 55c with tractors; 
disking in combination, 32c with 
horses as against 59c with tractors; 
harrowing 18c with horses as against 
30c with tractors; drawing hay load 

Of 13,148 cows tested in various 
parts of the United States, those 
that freshened in September, Octo- 
ber and November produced 14 per 
cent more milk and butterfat and 
7.7 per cent more net profit above 
feed costs than those that freshened 
n the spring, acording to cow-test- 
ing associations results cited by dairy 
men at the College of Agriculture 
in pointing out to Kentucky farmers 
the advantages of having cows to 
freshen in the winter. Animals bred 
in January and February will fresh- 
en in October and November respect- 

The cow that freshens l n the fall 
or winter is stimulated in produc- 
tion even though she is fed on dry 
feed because it is the beginning of 
her lactation period, W. S. Ander- 
son, one of the college dairymen 
said. Her production will decrease 
gradually as the winter goes on but 
when turned on pasture she will be 
stimulated fo greater production be- 
cause of the beneficial effects of the 
green food. In this way the produc- 
tion of the cow that freshens in the 
fall or winter is Ktimulated twice 
each year. 

Other advantages of having some 
of the cows freshen in the fall and 
winter months which the specialists 
have pointed out follow: 

The greatest yield of milk and but- 
terfat is obtained during the fall 
and winter when dairy products are 
highest and in greatest demand. 

The cows are dry during the hot, 
late, sumer season when flies are bad 
and dairy products are cheap 

More time is available for caring 
for the cows and calves during the 
winter than in the Jprii 

er, 52c with horses and 01* with 
tractors, and drawing grain binder, 
31c with horses, 56c with tractors. 

The value of mechanical motive 
tower is clearly recognized by the 
Horse Aseodation of Amftrka, but 
after a tboreugb nation-wide Inquiry, 
It has been shown that the enforced 
displacement of the horse In farm 
work has- been expensive to the 
farmer and haa increased the cost of 
living to every family in America. 

The various State Agricultural Col- 
leges, particularly in the central west, 
are stressing the print that horses 
should be bred for *ae definite qual- 
ities which stand the" test of long, 
hard service, an infusion of thorough- 

bred blood giving spirit, vigor uud en- 
durance to the colder breeds. 

George Lane, head of a $1,000,000 
live-stock ranch In Canada, ln a retent 
letter to Wayne Dinsmore, Secretary 
of the Horse Association of America. 
said : 

"I have crossed Thoroughbred sires 
on broncho mares; on high grade 
Clydesdale mares; on mares sired by 
Percheron stallions out of broncho 
dams ; on mares that were *£ or % 
Percheron; and whenever I had a 
pure bred Percheron mare that would 
pot settle to a Percheron sire, i bred 
her to a thoroughbred sire, and 
usually got such mares In foal, the re- 
sult being a crossbred thoroughbred 
Percheron. We have bred the female 
produce resulting from these various 
crosses to both thoroughbred and 
Percheron sires, so that we have 
horses carrying various degrees of 
thoroughbred blood— from ^ to % 
bred from mares of various types 
and blood strains. From long ex- 
perience in the use of such, horses, 
and our actual breeding operations, 
I know that the thoroughbred cross 
on any draft mare Increases quality 
endurance, and length of life." 

The manufacture of mechanical mo- 
tive power already has caused an 
enormous drain upon our available 
labor resources, so that every tune a 
farmer, or business man, buys a 
mechanical power unit which he does 
not absolutely need, he Is simply bid- 
ding up the labor market against him- 
self. Nor can the market far coarse 
grains be left eat of consideration. 
The displacement of horses occurring 
In the years 10iO to 1920, destroyed 
an annual market tt ever 113 million 
bushels of oats, 70 million bushels of 
corn and 4fc million tens of hay- 
more than the average* total expert 
per year on these items. The curtail* 
inent of city demand cuts off dot only 
the outlet for surplus farm horses, bat 
this great market for staple Urtm

in the discharge of their duties. To 
Suppress reporting crime commit- 
ted of which you have knowledge, is 
indirectly a violation of the law. If 
lawlessness in all its forms, is to be 
suppressed, then our law-abiding cit- 
izens must aid and uphold the of- 
ficers of the law, rather than suppress 
any information that would cause 
the arrest and punishment of those 
guilty of crime. Kentucky is by no 
means worse than other states in 
point of crime, but enough lawless-

cause no little alarm to peace-lov-

When the Republicans carried the 
election of 1920, they had a great 
deal to say about the difficult busi- 
ness conditions of that year, and 
were making optimistic predictions 
about the improvement that would 
at once occur if that party was put 
in power. They have now been in 
power nearly a year. 

It may be admitted that things are 
on the up-grade, but they would have 
been just the same if the Democrats 
had stayed in power. The conditions 
causing depression at the time of 
the last election were world wide, 
and no political party would remove 
them at once. 

' One of the biggest causes for 
such depression was the failure to 
enter the League of Nations. If the 
Republican party had shown a little 
more willingness to compromise, 
some reservations would have been 
accepted to the league convenant, 
and the reconstruction of the world 
could have proceeded from that date. 
But the isolation of this country 
tied up world recovery three years. 
With the economic conference about 
to be called to unite Europe on some 
plan for economic advance, the world 
js abVut where it would have . been 
in 1910 if the league convenant had 
been ratified. With America out, 
those powers could not solve their 
difficulties alone. It was not so much 
that they needed the military and 
financial help of this country, as that 
they needed the sound advice of our 
statesmen. Our people were outside 
the bitter racial disputes of Europe, 
and could have medirated between 
all these warring rivalries and would 
have enabled these hostile countries 
to settle down for a combined pull. 
With America out of the league 
the European nations have been just 
running around in circles, and they 
get nowhere. It all reacts on this 
country. Fortunately our people are 
beginning to see how our failure to 
co-operate has hurt, and the admin- 
istration is reported as ready to send 
delegates to the new conference. It 
is now doing what should have been 
done in 1919.

With the timber shortage situa- 
tion growing more serious each year, 
owners of much cheap land in Ken- 
tucky are finding the w«~ ,*§»-' 

ture a promising method of develop- 
ing their property, according to 
Ralph Kenney, an agronomist at the 
College of Agriculture who is de- 
veloping this project among farmers 
of the State. Development of wood- 
land pastures on newly cleared land 
laid out to rest should prove profit- 
able since soil of this type is us- 
ually too poor or not suited for a 
cultivated crop, according to Mr. 

Kentucky already is dotted with 
many woodland pastures, some of 
which have been developed during 
past 30 years, while others have 
been in existence for two genera- 
tions or more. The central bluegrass 
region of the State originally was 
developed as an immense woodland 
pasture while Christian county at 
the present time was walnut pas- 
tures of from 10 to 30 acres with 
40 to 50 trees, 25 to 35 years old, 
to the acre, according to Mr. Ken- 

Many farms in all limestone sec- 
tions of the State have small patch- 
es of three to five acres of locust 
trees usually grown on rocky spots 
of the farm. In many cases the de- 
velopment of the trees has made the | 
rocky spots among the most valuable 
on the farm. 

In other sections of the State, 
groves of white oak trees two and 
three feet in diameter may be 
found. Poor soils of other counties

a few years timber worth much more. ' 
Goats and sheep can be used in the .

In making out his income tax re-

will find a considerable saving in

paid on the same, income for 1920. 

The exemptions provided by the 
revenue act of 1921 are $1,000 for 
single persons (the term including 
"widows, widowers, divorcees, and 
persons separated from husband and

■ There is a proposition before the 
Legislature of Kentucky to pass a 
law taxing the Racing interest, 
' oracles and admissions, for the pur- 
I pose of paying a Soldiers Bonus. 
First we had a proposition to per- 
1 m»t wine and beer to be manufactur- 
ed and sold and the tax arising from 
that business was to be paid to the 
soldiers as their bonus. Is it right to 
tax any particular business in order 
•to raise a fund to pay a bonus? The 
Jborras should be paid by the people 
•of the State as a whole and not by 
any particular interest. Some people 
would object to the money being 
raised by permitting light wine and 
beer to be manufactured and sold 
<with a tax attached, while others 
tfbink that a tax levied on the race 
tract, which they term a gambling 
institution, is just as bad. If the 
bonua is to be paid let the fund be 
raised by a tax on all the people and 
not on any particular business, *s 
pecially on wines, beer or the ra<L 
ttract. Let the fund that is raised to

Frankfort. — Adoption of an extra-

Morrow's veto by a vote of 29 to 6 
and apparent determination on tho 
part of a large majority to pas a 
bill which would put a stop to parol- 
ing prisoners convicted of certain 
crimes marked today's Senate ses- 

It was the first time in the nr.em- 
iry of the oldest Senator here that 
a measure wa« pntsed over a Gov- 
ernor's veto. 

The message from the Governor 
was to the effect that he disapproved 
and vetoed the resolution which 
would allow the employment of as- 
sistant stenographers, pages and 
doorkeepers on the grounds that such 
action would be unconstitutional. 
Daugherty Starts Action. 
Senator Frank Daugherty started 
action on the resolution, moving that 
the resolution be reconsidered and 
placed on its passage despite the gub- 
ernatorial veto. The motion to re- 
consider the resolution having pass- 
ed the resolution itself came up for 

in voting for the resolution over 
the Governor's veo, several of the 
Republican Senators felt called on to 
explain their action. Mr. Baker was 
the first. He said he felt it would be 
ail right to vote for the resolution 
considering the fact that the Gov- 
ernor was merely performing his 
duty in pointing out the unconstitu- 
tionality of the mea5"ire. 

"I do not consid* . i vote for the 
resolution a reflection on the Gov-

Mr. Joseph H. Scoopmire was 
born May 23, 1842; departed this 
life Jan. 8, 1922, age 79 years, 7 
months, 15 days. 

At the age of two years he came 
with his parents to the United States 
where they settled in Switzerland 
county Indiana. He was a soldier in 
the Civil War, having enlisted in the 
6th Ind., Volunteers, Company H. at 
Madison, Ind. While in service he 
was wounded three times, and at 
the close of the war, received an 
honorable discharge. He Was mar- 
ried Oct. 7th, 1868, to Miss Virginia 
Aylor, who survives him. To th'a 
union were born eight children, sev- 
en of whom survive. One daughter, 
Mrs. J. G. Cox, having departed this 
life October 9th, 1900. The surviv- 
ing children are: Mr. W. B. Scoop- 
mire, Gallup, N. Mex.; Mrs. Ken- 
nedy F. Rhea, Washington, D. C; 
Mr. Everett Scoopmire, Dillsboro, 
Ind.; Mrs. Joe Smith, Washington, 
D. C. ; Mrs. C. B. Lewis, Louisville, 
Ky.; Messrs. Oscar and Reed Scoop- 
mire, of Holton, Indiana. , 

Mr. Scoopmire was a member of 
the Christian church for many years. 
He was also a member of the G. A. 
R., three fraternal orders — the F. 
& A. M., I. O. .0. F. and K. of P. 
He was a kind husband and father, 
a good and honest citizen, having 
served his county in an official way. 

It is needless to say his presence 
will be sadly missed in the home and 
community where he has lived for 
fifty years. The bereaved wife and 
children have the loving sympathy 
of the entire church and community. 

May you find comfort in Christ, 
and grant that you may live with 
him in everlasting life.

"OVER THE HILL" tells a 
story as old as life itself and 
as new as the present moment. 
It is a story of mother-love, 
divine — of beauty sacrifice 
suffered uncomplainingly, and 
finally rewarded. 

During the year nearly a 
million New Yorkers flocked 
delightedly to see it, constitu- 
ting in several instances a 
tcaflc problem of no small pro- 
portions. The crowds that 
gathered twice daily in the 
theatre lobby before it consti- 
tuted, too, a veritable Vanity 
Fair, inasmuch as it drew to 
its doors people fiom every 
walk of life, the young, the 
old, the rich and poor. The 
universality of its appeal 
makes "Over the Hill" at 
onoe the picture for every- 
body. There is no type or class 
of theatregoer extant "Over 
the Hill" cannot amuse and

A real estate deal was pulled off 
here last week, Edward Busby be- 
came owner of the property former- 
ly owned by Mrs. Polly Rouse. 

In a recent letter from Linnie 
Busby, who went South a short while 
ago, he states he has located in Bar- 
tow, Florida, and has a position in 
a garage, and is highly pleased with 
the country and climate. 

An old portion of a still which had 
been left at the home of J. H. Tan- 
ner, and had been exposed to (he 
weather for several years, was stol- 
en recently. This sfill had been the 
property of his grandfather many 
years ago, and was used for making 
apple and peach brandy before moon 
shine was in evidence. The party 
who got it " v V«ve to go to the 
expense to get a new worm for that 
part of the machine was destroyed 
many years ago. While it is copper 
and of some value Mr. Tanner is 
not worrying over it, as he had no 
use for it, as he is not versed in the 
secret of making moonshine.

industrious citizen, a good neighbor, 
a devoted husband and an indulgent

many years. 

Besides his sister and brothers he

Some Aspects of the 
Farmers' Problems 



.ted from Atlantic Monthly) 

Belt mAcICnt and aid not depend upon*

world was doing. The result U that

much at a disadvantage In dealing wltb

farmers thortuffhl/ understand this, 
gnd thoy are Intelligently striving to 
iTiregrnte their Industry so that it wljl 
be on au equal footing with othet busi- 

As an example of Integra Mon t take 
the steel Industry, In which the model 
is the United States Steel Corporation, 
•wltn Its Iron mines, Its coal mines, Us 
lake and 
vessels Its 

blast furnaces" Its open hearth and 
Bessemer furnaces, its rolling mills, its 
tube mills and other manufacturing 
processes that are carried to the high- 
est degree of finished production com 
with the large trade It 

To take a tolerant and sympathetic 
view of the farmers' strivings for bet- 
ter things is not to give a blanket 
endorsement to any specific plan, and 
still I*** to applaud the vagaries of 
soma of their leaders and groups. 
Neither should* we, oh the other hand, 
allow the froth of bitter agitation, 
false economics, and; mistaken radical- 
ism to conceal the facts of the farm- 
ers' disadvantages, and the practicabil- 
ity of eliminating them by weU-con-, S^cSSviwaal 
sjdered measures ft may be that the «$J ] , * lTraft 
farmers will not show the buslnega 
sagacity and develop the wise leader- 
ship to carry through sound 'plans ; but 
fktt possibility does nf/t Justify the 


up. All this la generally conced- 
ed to be to the advantage of the con- 
sumer. Nor does the steel corporation

of defective distribution of fartn, prod- 
ucts. Should it not occur to us that 
we have a conyaon Interest with the 
farmer in his attempts to attain a de- 
gree of, efficiency In distribution cor- 
responding to his efficiency in produc- 
tion 7 Do not the recent fluctuations 
in the May wheat option, apparently 
unrelated to normal Interaction of 
Inconsiderately dump Its products on | guppl y and a eman( i i offer a timely 

' proof of the need of some such stabil- 
ising agency as the grain growers have 
In contemplation? 

It is contended that, if their pro- 
posed organisations be perfected and 
operated, the farmers will have in 
their hands an Instrument that will be 
capable of dangerous abuse. We are 
told that it will be possible to pervert 
it to arbitrary and oppressive price- 
fixing from its legitimate use of order- 
ing and stabilizing the flow of farm 
products to the market, to the mutual 
benefit of producer and consumer. I 
save no apprehensions on this point. 

In the first place, a loose organiza- 
tion, such as any union of farmers 
must be at best, cannot be so arbi- 
trarily and promptly controlled as a 
great corporation. The one is a lum- 
bering democracy and the other an agile 

aS a whole, they are endeavoring to 
fulfill as they see them the obligations 
that go with their power. Preoccupied 
with the grave problems and heavy 
tasks of their own Immediate affairs, 
they have not turned their thoughtful 
personal attention or their construc- 
tive abilities to the deficiencies of agri- 
cultural business organization. Agri- 
culture. It may be said, suffers from 
their preoccupation and neglect rather 
than from any purposeful exploitation 
by them. They ought now to begin to 
respond to the farmers' difficulties, 
which they must realize are their own. 
On the other hand, my contacts with 
the farmers have filled me with respect 
for them— for their sanity, their pa- 
tience, their balance. Within the last 
year and particularly at s meeting 
called by the Kansas SUte Board of 
Agriculture an! at atiothef called, pj 
the Committee of Seventeen, J. have 
met many of the leaders of the new 
farm movement, and I testify In all 
sincerity that they are endeavoring to 
deal with their problems, not as pro- 
moters 0* • narrow class Interest, not 
as exploiters of the hnpltsj consu.rn.eB, 
not as merciless monopolists, but as

the market. On the contrary, 
acts that It is frequently a stabilising 
influence, as Is often the case with oth- 
er large organizations. It Is master of 
its distribution ss well as of Its pro- 
duction. If prices are not satisfactory 
the products are held back or produc- 
tion is reduced or suspended. It Is not 
compelled to send a year's work to the 
market at one time and take whatever 
It can get under such circumstances. 
It has one selling policy snd its own 
export department. Neither are the 
grades and qualities of steel determin- 
ed at the caprice of the buyer, nor does 
the latter hold the scales. In this sin- 
gle Integration of the steel corporation 
is represented about 40 per cent of the 
steel production of America. The rest 
is mostly In the hands of a few large 
companies. In ordinary times the 
steel corporation, by example, stabilizes

and continued prosperity) why would j farmers cannot succeed to any great 

'it be wrong for the farmers to utilize 
central agencies that would have simi- 
lar effects on agricultural products? 
Something like that Is what they are 
aiming at 

Some farmers favored by regional 
compactness and contiguity, such as the 
cltrus-frult-ralsers of California, al- 
ready have found a way legally to 
u ... merge and sell their products inte- 
• .> orally and In accordance with seasonal 
% and local demand, thus improving 
V*J3|ieir. position and rendering the con- 
suwef.a reliable service of ensured 
'{gnsTiit\ertain supply, and reasonable 
and retaUyely steady prices. They 
have not found it necessary to resort 
to any special privilege, or to claim 
any exemption under the anti-trust 
legislation o* the state or nation. With- 
out removing local ebritrol, they have 
built up a very efficient marketing 
agency. The grain, cotton, and to- 
bacco farmers, and the producers of 
hides and wool, because of their num- 
bers and the vastness of their regions, 
and for other reasonB, have found 
Integration a more . difficult task ; 
though there are now some thousands 
■' of farmer's co-operative elevators, 
warehouses, creameries, and other en- 
terprises of one sort and another, with 
a turn-over of a billion dollers a year. 
They are giving the farmers business 

extent, or for any considerable length 
of time, in fixing prices. The great 
law of supply and demand works in 
various and surprising ways, to the 
undoing of the best laid plans that 
attempt to foil It. In the third place, 
their power will avail the farmers 
nothing If it be abused. In our time 
and country power is of value to tts 
possessor only so long as It is not 
abused. It Is fair to say that I have 
seen no signs In responsible quarters 
of a disposition to dictate prices. 
There seems, on the contrary,' to be a 
commonly beneficial purpose to realise 
a stability that will glv> an orderly 
and abundant flow of farm products 
to the consumer and ensure reasonable 
and dependable returns to the pro- 

In view of the supreme Importance 
to the national well-being of a pros- 
perous and contented agricultural pop- 
ulation, we should be prepared to go 
a long way in assisting the farmers t« 
get an equitable share of the wealth 
they produce, through the Inaugura- 
tion of reforms that will procure a 
continuous and Increasing stream of 
farm products. They are far from get- 
ting a fair share now. Considering 
his capital and the long hours of labor 
put in by the average farmer and his 


During recent years a great deal 
of money has been spent in making 
leading automobile roads safe. One 
special cause of expense has been 
cutting out sharp curves. Yet it is 
noted that widening and straighten- 
ing these highways does not remove 

Some of the worst places for auto- 
mobiles smash-ups 'are fine cement 
and bituminous roads, where all con- 
ditions are favorable, but where the 
speeders get out and race, and cut 
in ahead of other machines. 

A recent study of accidents in 
the state of Maryland illustrates this 
idea. At the point where the state 
highway crosses the Blue Ridge 
mountains, where the gTades are 
steep and curves sharp, but four^ ac- 
cidents occurred in three months 
while this investigation was being 
made. During the same three months, 
on the national pike between Balti- 
more and Frederick where there are 
48 miles of the straightest road in 
the state, there were 22 accidents, 
three of them fatal. 

When it comes to sharp turns and 
bad grades most drivers realize that 
there is peril, and exercise care. But 
when they get out on a wide and 
handsome thoroughfare, the speed 
devil takes possession of the minds 
of many and the result is a har- 
vest of disaster. 

Such conditions raise a question 
as to whether it is desirable to spend 
money with such freedom in remov- 
ing every possible danger. It is not 
possible to eliminate all perils, and 
motorists must learn to exercise that 
high degree of caution which assures 

Rather than spend millions to 
protect fool drivers, it would seem 
better policy to put the money on the 
side roads that reach out into the ag- 
cultural country, and give the far- 
mers a hard road to market, thus re- 
ducing the cost of getting foods to 
market and conferring a benefit on 

Having decided to quit farming I will sell to

they go, they meet the need of 

onest weighing and fair grading; but 

they do not meet the requirements of 

rationally adjusted marketing In any 

large and fundamental way. 

The next step, which will be a pat- 
tern for other groups. Is now being 
prepared by the grain-raisers through 
the establishment of sales media which 
shall handle grain separately or c»l 
lectively, as the individual farmer may 
elect. It is this step— the plan of the 
Committee of Seventeen— which has 
created so much opposition and Is 
thought by some to be In conflict with 
the anti-trust laws. Though there Is 
now before congress a measure de- 
signed to clear up doubt on this point, 
the grain-producers are not relying on 
any Immunity from anti-trust legisla- 
tion. They desire, and they ore en- 
titled,- to co-ordinate their efforts Just 
as effectively as the large business In- 
terests of the country have dune. In

It is essential that the farmers | 
should proceed gradually with Utaaa 
plans, and aim to avoid the error of 
scrapping the existing marketing ma.

possible exception of teachers, reli-

the present general distress of the 
farmers is exceptional and is linked 
with the Inevitable economic readjust- 
ment following the war. It must be 
remembered that, although represent- 
ing one-third of the Industrial product 
and half the total population of the 
nation, the rural communities ordi- 
narily enjoy but a fifth to a quarter of 
the net annual national gain. Notwith- 
standing the taste of prosperity that 
the farmers had during the war, there 
la today s lower standard of living 
among the cotton farmers of the South 
than In any other pursuit in the eountry. 
In conclusion, It seems to me that the 
farmers are chiefly striving for a gen- 
erally beneficial integration of their 
business, of the same kind and charac- 
ter that other business enjoys. If it 
ahould be found on examination that 
the attainment of this end requires

Iteoeeeary Buying anil Tht 
Business Outlook. 

^^e real basis for confidence 
baa course of business in 1922. 
W clear. Notwithstanding the se- 
depremion during the past yeir, 
bases by the American people 
m terms of physical volume were suf- 
loient to absorb to a large extent 
•eeomulated stocks so that a gradual 
msTease in output of many classes of 
Manufacturers may be expected. Fu- 
ture needs must be supplied primar- 
ily from current production. This 
■wans greater business activity and 
explains the expansion in manufac- 
tures which has taken place in re- 
cent weeks. 

The general tone of business dur- 
ing the first two weeks of Januarv 
has been encouraging. The total phy- 
sical volume of retail trade is good, 
.'sales in agricultural districts con- 
tinue slower than in cities with 
trade in the East and Northeast and 
m southern California cities better 
than in the remainder of the coun- 
try. Necessities are selling much bet- 
ter than are luxuries, and this was 
characteristic of the Christmas trade. 
Although it is generally recognized 
that buyers in all lines will wisely 
continue to be cautious as to future 
commitments, it seems probable thac 
there will be a moderately well-sus- 
tained distribution of goods into 
wholesale as into retail channels. 

Unemployment is unquestionably 
widespread, but probably its extent 
has been somewhat over-estimated. 
Special measures undertaken to les- 
sen it, particularly public works, arc 
doing much to alleviate its worn 
features. The major part of the pro- 
ductive energy of the country is ab- 
sorbed in clothing, feeding and shel- 
tering the population. Farmers cer- 
tainly will not buy heavily, but they 
must have such foodstuffs as are not 
produced on farms, as well as nec- 
essary clothing. They must buy some 
farm implements, for even with the 
more careful repairing which is in- 
creasingly practised, a certain pro- 
portion of farm mochinery steadily 
becomes unusable. They will buy 
some fertilizer, and they will buy ar- 
ticles of convenience and even of 
luxury to some extent. 

Railroads have made notable gains 
in economy of operation, and im- 
proved credit conditions have defin- 
itely bettered their outlook, although 
traffiic is at present disappointing in 
volume. The heavy decline in ton- 
nage, serious as it has been, has pri- 
marily been the result of lessened 
shipments of coal, iron ore and sim- 
ilar heavy commodities. Reasonable 
buying of rails, cars, locomotives 
and other equipment may be expect- 
ed during the current year. 

Building And Construction. 

The year opens with promise of 
active building construction. With

The Literary Program was nicely 
carried out by the scholars Friday 
afternoon. Everyone had his or her 
part perfect. These programs are 
just what the pupils need. When they 
get up before large audiences they 
will know how to conduct themselves, 
speaking, with ease anH -^ #orc*v to 
their words. We have too many back- 
ward pupils in our schools today 
that need just such training to enable 
them to express themselves properly 
before large audiences. 


How many are starting the year 
1922 after having made a well de- 
fined plan for the year's work? To 
those who have not, we would ear- 
nestly advise that they proceed im- 
rr.edfc»tely to take a day, or a weak 
if r;eeessary, off and do so. 

The success of mankind is attain-

laid plans. Well laid plans are not 
produced by careless thinking but are 
the result of many calculations of 

Frankfort, Ky. — Trading stamps 
received a jolt in the House of Rep- 
resentatives when the anti-stamp 
bill was passed by a vote of 59 to 26 
after a short debate. 

Representatives C. D. McCaw, its 
author; Harry Miller, of Lexington 
and Mrs. Mary Elliott Flanery spooke 
for the measure and Representatives 
D. A. O'Donovan of Covington and 
C. A. Nelson of Hardin county, op- 
posed it. 

The bill says whoever goes on the 
streets of an unincorporated village 
with no police protection clad only 
in a bathing suit is guilty of a mis- 
demeanor and liable to a fine of 
from $10 to' $50. 

The clarion call for morality rang 
in the House of Representatives when 
the anti-bathing suit bill of Repres- 
entative Charles A. Nelson of White 
Mills, Hardin county, was passed by 
a vote of 66 to 20.

reported without expression of opin-

A first reading was also given to 
Representative R. M. Amos' bill to

voted down. 

wife or husband whose net income 
for 1921 was $5,000 or less, is al- 
lowed a personal exemption ol $2,- 
500. Under the revenue act of 1913 
the exemption allowed a married per- 
son was $2,000, regardless of the 
amount of net income. 

The normal tax rate is the same, 
4 per cent on the first $4,000 of net 
income above the exemptions, and 8 
per cent on the remaining net in- 
come. Given his personal exemption 
of $2,500, plus $400 for each de- 
pendent, a married man with three 
children — the average American 
family— will pay this year on a net 
income of. $4,00fTa tax of $12. On 
the same income for 1921 he would 
have paid a tax of $56. 

Every citizen and resident of the 
United States must determine for 
himself whether his income for 1921 
was sufficient to require that a re- 
turn be filed. Full instructions for 
making out a return are contained 
on the forms, a copy of which will be 
sent to taxpayers who filed a return 
last year. Failure to receive a re- 
turn, howler, doe 8 not relieve a 
taxpayer of his obligation to file a 
return on time, on or before March 
15, 1921. Forms may be obtained 
from collectors of internal revenue 
and branch offices.

Labor has not been liquidated and 
building costs therefore are still far 
above prewar levels, and are out of 
line with prices generally. This con-

against individual enterprises for 
personal occupancy, or public build- 
ings, and public works. 

Consequently the field of residence

ing shortage has not yet been met. 
The entire country needs highway 
construction, and there is wide- 
spread necessity for essential public 
buildings. It is recognized as good 
public policy to carry on construc- 
tion of these classes at times when 
industrial activity is at a relatively 
low level. Lower money is making 
this construction possible. This is 
unmistakably shown by the volune

Valentine's day. St. Valentine is said 
to have been a bishop who suffered

in 171. 

Like many another semi-Christian 
custom, the day set apart to the mem-

Seymour Wilson, of the Frances- 
ville neighborhood, was transacting 
business in Burlington, last Thurs- 
day, and while in town called at the 
RECORDER office. Mr. Wilson said 
he delivered his crop of tobacco to 
the Burley pool at Walton the first 
of the week, and was perfectly satis- 
fied with the way the tobacco was 
handled. He had 5643 pounds and 
was paid more as an advance on his 
crop than he received for his entire 
crop last year. He reported that the 
new machinery of the pool worked 
smoothly and the growers seemed 
well satisfied. 


"Do you simply wait on custo- 
mers," asked a merchant of a clerk 
the other day, "or do you practice 
creative salesmanship." 

This is a question which every sel 
ler of goods may well ask himself. 
Some will say that creative sales- 
manship is persuading people to buy- 
things they never wanted before. 
Some business men have won success 
in that way. Still it has its disadvant- 
ages, since people are over per- 
suaded into buying an article, they 
usually regret it afterward. 

The best kind of creative salesman- 
ship is to become so thoroughly in- 
formed about goods that people like 
to do business with you, because they 
feel that you help them get the most 
values for their money. One who 
does that is constantly building up 
new business for his firm, and is the 
finest type of a creative salesman. 
That is the kind of salesmanship the 
stores are working for. 

Gov. Edwin P. Morrow plans to 
take a hand in the fight being made 
by Senator Hiram M. Brock, of Har- 
lan, Republican floor leader of the 
Senate, to repudiate the administra- 
tion's policy in the management of 
the penal and charitable institutions. 

One of the Brock bills would im- 
pose qualifications of State Senators 
on the members of the State Board 
of Charities and Corrections and 
Commissioner of Public Institutions, 
the qualifications of Representatives 
on the heads of institutions and of 
Kentucky citizenship on employes. 

See Reaction Among Politicians 

The contest between the Governor 
and the minority floor leader will de- 
termine how strong the administra- 
tion is with the Republican Legisla- 
tors after two years. The adminis- 
tration forces regarded the "anti" 
movement as a reaction among pol- 
iticians against the removal of some 
600 positions from the political pat- 
ronage list.

The difference between a gossip

but the advantage of the snake over 
the gossip is a big one and lies in 
the fact that you do not have to lis-

gossip's sting never kills.

Out in the country the other day, 
a party of children, evidently just 
freed from school and books, were 
truoging along the road. 

A large touring car with a single 
occupant, a man, came up behind 
them, honking its warning and de- 
manding right of way. As the driver 
slowed down to lessen the jar, the 
road being rather rough at this 
point, the children shouted, "Give us 
a ride, won't you mister?" Looking 
neither to right nor to left, he gave a 
couple honks, stepped on the ga*, 
and soon was lost to view. 

Disnppointed, the children went 
on, and forgot it. 

S.iddeii'y, they heard a rattle and 
a roar behind them, and upon tuni- 
ng to look, they beheld a flivver ap- 

cation of that clause of the market- 
ing contract would have on conrol 
of tobacco grown for the next five 
years on the lands of members of 
the Barley Tobacco Growers' Co-op- 
erative Association. 

"Tenants who belong to the As-

the future as they are this year, in-

ly rent land to non-members upon a 
crop sharing basis. 

"I believe it would be a good 
policy for landlords to refuse to 
rent land to tenants who are unwill- 
ing to sign the Association contract, 
but in the event that this cannot be 
avoided, it will be legally ecessary 
for them to make such contracts 
with their tenants as to provide for 
the control and sale of the tobacco 
remaining absolutely in the hand* 
of the landlord. 

"To avoid any possible difficulty, 
however, it will be much more pre- 
ferable for landlords to insist upon 
having all their tenants join the As- 
sociation. In short, so far as the As- 
sociation is concerned, its relation- 
ship with tenant members will al- 
ways be on a par to its relationship 
with landlord members, but in the 
future landlords should guard against 
making contracts with their tenant* 
which in any way can be construed 
as beig in opposition to their con- 
tract with the Association, which 
provides that all of the tobacco they 
control, directly or indirectly, must

About now used to be the high

Democrats to Recoup In No-

Arthur B. Rouse, of Kentucky, 
Chairman of the Democratic National 
Congressional Committee, is pro- 
ceeding energetically with prepara- 
tions for the vigorous campaign 
which the Democrats expect to make 
this year to elect a controlling ma- 
jority in Congress. 

In response to a question as to 
the progress that is being made in 
reorganizing the congressional com- 
mittee he said: 

"We have about completed our 
organisation in each state. Our com- 
mittee includes in its membership a 
representative in congress from ev- 
ery state in the union that has Dem- 
ocratic representation in the Na- 
tional Law-making body. There are 
now twenty-three states that are 
without democratic representation 
in congress. In all except five of 
these states I have appointed a 
prominent democrat to represent the 
state on the committee and he or- 
ganization will be completed within 
the next week. The committee will 
also have a woman representative in 
each state and about half of these 
appointments have been made."

Lexington, Ky. — A large portion 
of the approximately 200,000,000- 
pounds of burley tobacco controlled 
by the Burley Tobacco Growers Co- 
operative' Association has been sold 
"at very satisfactory prices," and 
prospects are bright for the early 
sole of the remainder, Jas. C. Stone 
vice-president and general manager, 
announced Saturday. 

Mr. Stone declined to state how 
much of the crop has been sold or 
at what" prices, saying that he waa 
"not able to make an intelligent re- 
port" at that time on the quantity, 
prices, or buyers. 

The leaf thus far sold has been to 
several buyers, Mr. Stone said, and 
much of it was in winter order. "We 
are very optimistic over prospects 
for the sale of the entire crop soon, 
with most of it in winter order," Mr. 
Stone said. Winter order is tobacco 
in loose leaf form. Sale in winter or- 
der means that the redrying process 
is in the hands of the buyer. 


Twenty million pounds of the pool 
tobacco has been sold for an" aver- 
age of between 20 and 30 cents to 
the Liggett & Myers Co., according 
to well founded reports Saturday. 

Ralph M. Barker, director of 
warehouses for the cooperative as- 
sociation, said Saturday that the 
Liggett & Myers Co., was one of 
the purchasers, but declined to state 
the amount bought or the figure

Daughter of Frank Bacon, to be 
eeen in "LIGHTNIN' " at the Grand 
Opera House, Cincinnati, for a 
week starting Sunday night, Feb. 

Not since the early tours at "Ben 
Hur" and "The Old Homestead" have 
American playgoers awaited a theatri- 
cal offering as eagerly as they are 
waiting for "Lightnin". Its run of three 
solid years on Broadway established 
a new world's record and in the few 
cities where it has been presented on 
tour almost as many have been turned 
away as have been able to crowd Into 
the theatres. The special cast to be 
seen in Cincinnati is the only one pre- 
senting "Lightnin" on tour. R it 
headed by .Milton Nobles in the roie of 
Bill Jones, the lovable old vagabond 
whose slow movements give the play 
Its title, and Bessie Bacon, who ap- 
peared with her father, Frank Bacon, 
for more than two years at the Gaiety 
theatre. The organization comes di- 
rect from a three weeks' engagement 
In Cleveland.

If the time ever was that newspa- 
pers of the country were called upon 
to denounce lawlessness and crime, 
that time is now. Business houses, 
banking institutions, private homes 
and individuals are suffering loss, 
and in many instances, death at the 
hands of bandits. Law has no check, 
it seems, upon the lawless element, 
and the public stand in desperate, 
frantic anxiety to know when it may 
feel safe from the bandit's attack. 
Whatever may be said of the causes 
leading up to the present deplorable 
conditions, certainly there's no time 
in the history of this country when 
crime was more prevalent over the 
entire land. People must arise as de- 
termined private citizens and with 
one mighty sweep clear our country 
of all classes of people of question- 
able character, and men who have no 
visible means of support should be 
placed upon the public works of the 
State. — Pendleton Reformer.

Lexington, Ky. — In view "of the 
small quantity of certified and care- 
fully selected potato seed that is 
available each year, specialists on 
the crop at the College of Agricul- 
ture are urging Kentucky farmerj 
to get their supply of seed as early 
as possible. The small amount of 
good seed that is placed on the mar- 
ket each year is soon taken up by 
large potato growers with the result 
that farmers who'fail to order earry 
are compelled to plant the common 
seed which is available in large 
quantities later in the season, the 
specialists say. Good seed that has 
been selected from certified stock is 
one of the best means of insuring 
a big crop, the specialists are point- 
ing out to farmers. 

Kentucky will have a limited 
amount of certified seed for sale dur- 
ing the coming season while Maine, 
New York, Vermont, Minnesota and 
several other states will have their 
usual quantity, according to the po- 
tato men.

February, the short month, con- 
tains two holidays of the greatest 
. national sginificance, devoted to the 
observance of the birthdays of the 
two principal figures in American 
history. The greater our country be- 
comes, the more revered are these 
two figures — Washington who made 
the republic and established its most 
•enduring principles, Lincoln who pre- 
served and gave it a greater destiny. 
Considering the patriotic relations 
of these observances and their effects 
upon citizenship, small wonder that 
each succeeding year sees them mor. 
widely celebrated. We look back a

How To Secure The Money To Build 
The Dixie Highway. 

The first thought I have for you 
I have borrowed from the War Cen- 
tenary and educational drive. Ap- 
point a committee and let them al- 
lot an amount to each precinct ac- 
cording to the benefits derived, and 
select a committee in each precinct 
to tLu their quota. Have some 
meetings and get some good speak- 
ers in order to arouse more enthus- 
iasm among those already interest- 
ed, so they will go after the TIGHT 
WADS that will never come out to 
any meetings where they feel they 
will be called upon to take some ac- 
tive part. Every one in the county 
*•;• be benefited by the building of 
this road as it will relieve the coun- 
ty of the upkeep. It will take a 
large part of $19,000 right now to 
put this road in any kind of repair 
by spring. And a large amount ev- 
ery year to keep it in repair. Now 
by a little extra effort at this time 
we may get rid of this burden. "Are 
we going to do it?" or one wait for 
another and let the time pass, get 
busy with the spring work and lose 
the greatest opportunity of a life 
time of doing something worth 

The next thought I have for you 
is not to limit this to the $19,000 
needed for the Dixie but get sub- 
scribed as much as possible. If one 
wants to give say five hundred dol- 
lars for road purposes and hasn't 
the money now, make it in the form 
of a note payable one to five years, 
one hundred dollars per year or any 
otirt. ir/nount he m«y ou desire. The 
amount of these notes taken care of 
by the banks of our county. The 
court setting aside an amount each 
year for five years as a sinking fund 
to secure the banks for this loan, 
and after paying the $19,000 for 
the Dixie Highway the balance to be 
returned to the roads of each pre- 
cinct in proportion to amounts sign- 
ed and paid. Now this or any other 
plans can be worked out in the 
committee meetings. The thing for 
us to do is to get busy, appoint the 
committees, have a county meeting 
at Burlington for this purpose, and 
let each precinct send a representa- 
tive to help formulate some feasible 
plan that will be just to all. So when 
you subscribe to this road fund and 
the Dixie Highway is completed you 
can take an active part and enjoy 
a jollification, at the old fair- 
grounds and have your name inscrib- 
ed on the honor roll. I suggest to 
have a chart hung in the court room 
with every name enrolled who has 
given to this worthy cause, as an in- 
spiration to the young of our coun- 
ty to greater deeds of service, that 
they may learn to love our county 
more. The more we invest in time 
and money in anything, the greater 
is our love for that thing. How much 
better for the fathers to invest some 
of their money in public improve- 
ments, teach their sons and daugh- 
ters their responsibility as citizens 
of the county, than to leave a large 
sum of money to invest in shoe- 
shines, moonshines, highshines and 
all other kind of shines that so may 
of the young engage in today. 

The next thought I have for you 
is to formulate some plan to utilize 
the large amount of muscle that is 
going to waste, lounging around the 
streets and stores of our villages, 
boys from 18 years and up. They 
use the roads and do not pay any 
tax to help keep them up. Boys, both 
white and colored can get out on 
the roads in their flivvers and knock 
more dust and rock off the roads 
from Saturday noon until Monday 
morning than a good old study far- 
mer would in a month, and as these 
boys, together with a large number 
of men both white and colored, who 
do not pay any road tax "yet use the 
roads" ought not to be denied the 
privilege of donating to this good 
cause. If we would show them we 
were expecting something of them, 
possibly there would not be so many 
crossleggers, blackleggers, bootleg- 
gers leaners and laggards in the 
world. Let us try to inspire them, 
and get them to see the dignity of 
service. A boy who can run a flivver 
can run a road truck and be of great 
service to hi 8 community. So I be- 
lieve that every able bodied man 
from 18 to 60 years of age should 
have the privilege of working on the 
roads., I suggested in my first article 
that farmers should work the roads 
in front of their farms as cheaply as 
possible and I still think that a good 
suggestion, but others use the roads, 
the men in these villages need good 
roads as well as the farmers, for the 
trucks to haul in their merchandise 
and for pleasure riding in their au- 
tos Ac. So come on boys, and when 
I say boys I mean from 18" up to 60 
years, let us stand shoulder to 
shoulder as the boys in the army and 
each do our part and the burden will 
not fall heavy on any of us and we 
will soon have good roads. I am just 
as anxious that our cross roads be 
kept in repair as I am for the build- 
ing of thr Dixie Highway, and I nm 
ready u> donate work for that pur- 
pose, but on these roads what we 
fail to accomplish this year we can 
finish next, but not so with the Dixie, 
if we fail to secure it now this op- 
portunity will forcv.-r he K, I. This 
iirticle is growing too long Mr. Ed-

manent improvement of $300,000. 
I know it is hard times, money is 
scarce, but let us deny ourselves and 
take up this cross and bear it brave- 
ly and greater will be the rejoicing 
when the task is completed. But one 
rnore thought. Let us get at it and 
keep at it, until we clinch this prop- 
osition, for with the building of the 
Dixie Highway will come a stimulace 
for road building throughout the 
county that can not be brought 
about in anyother way. And I have 
a vision, "And I am not visionary 
either." But I have a vision of auto 
buses coming pass our doors carry- 
ing our children to the High schools 
of our. county, and the building up 
of our villages along these highways, 
for with cheaper transportation our 
country merchants will be able to 
sell goods just as cheap or cheaper 
than the retailer in the large cities, 
because his overhead expense is so' 
much less, cheaper rent, cheaper 
clerk hire &c. And a live country 
merchant can buy hi s goods direct 
from the manufacturer or from the 
same source the city retailer buys 
his, and unlike the R. R. train he 
can stop his truck, deliver your 
goods at your door jnst as cheap as 
you could buy. them from the re- 
tailer in the city. I was a country 
merchant for years and I know what 
I am talking about. I know it can be 
done. But enough said for this time. 


A writer who recently made a sur- 
vey of rural conditions for the Iowa 
agricultural college, remarked on the 
high moral standards prevailing. He 
believed that the principal reason 
was the intimate comradeship exist- 
ing between parents and children in 
country towns. The children seem- 
ed to have a deep regard for their 
parents, and the parents controlled 
the children without severe discip- 
line. For years n school pupil had 
been expelled for misconduct. 

Not all rural communities could 
make so good a showing, yet condi- 
tions in the rural portions of Ken- 
tucky are better than in the cities. 
Parents who move out of country 
surroundings with the hope they are 
getting better opportunities for 
their children are exposing them to 
many temptations, as he result of 
which some of them are likely to go

"OVER THE HILL" tells a 
story as old as life itself and 
as new as the present moment 
It is a story of mother-loye. 
divine — of beauty sacrifice 
suffered uncomplainingly, and 
finally rewarded. 

During the year nearly a 
million New Yorkers flocked 
delightedly to see it, constitu- 
ting in several instances a 
traflc problem of no small pro- 
portions. The crowds that 
gathered twice daily in the 
theatre lobby before it consti- 
tuted, too, a veritable Vanity 
Fair, inasmuch as it drew to 
its doors people fiom every\ 
walk of life, the young, the 
old, the rich and poor. The 
universality of its appeal 
makes "Over the Hill" at 
once the picture for every- 
body. There is no type or class 
of theatregoer extant '-Over 
the Hill" cannot amuse and

Lexington, Ky. — As a result of the 
low prices of farm products, the 
acreage of grasses and clover seed- 
ed in Kentucky this spring is expect- 
ed to be increased approximately 
100 per cent over that of 1920, soils 
apd crops specialists at the College 
of Agriculture say. This is in line 
with the increase reported for 1981, 
About 80 per cent •<■ 0'e increased 
acreage will be seeci ! n that sec- 
tion of the State v h 1 i normally 
seeds red top or herd' U for pas- 

ture, according to o specialists. 

Good stands and su < * in grow- 
ing the increased a reuge will de- 
pend upon proper preparation of the 
seed bed and the use of sufficient 
seed, the sepcialists have pointed 
out to farmers. 

"Grasses of all kinds catch best 
on seed beds that are compact be- 
neath and only loose enough on 
t »p to cover the seed," Ralph Ken- 
ney, one of the specialists said. 
Land growing a cover crop of rye 
that is being grazed rather heavily 
is an ideal place to sow red red top 
since the tramping brings the seed 
in close contact with the moist earth 
and enables it to take roou. If the 
soil is loose on fields without a cover 
crop, it is frequently best to roll the 
land immediately after the grass has 
been sown. • 

"In spite of the fact that farmers 
in many localities of Kentucky sow- 
only three pounds of red top an acre, 
not less than five pounds should be 
used and 10 pounds is not too 
much. The amount of labor and 
trouble necessary to obtain a thick 
stand can be reduced if sufficient 
quantities of the seed are used in 
the first seeding. 

"In seeding red top, it is best to 
use a peck of Japan clover to the 
acre at the same time. This mixture 
increases the grazing furnished by 
the red top alone and in addition 
the clover, which is a legume, adds 
to the fertility of the soil. 

"Early seedings, if not killed by 
freezing, usually make the largest 
crop by mid summer and also usual- 
ly come through the summer in bet- 
ter shape. Many farmers sow th"ir 
seed one-third at a time at ten days 
intervals to insure a stand." 


The death of Pope Benedict will 
be mourned not merely by millions 
of people who were grateful for his 
unremitting efforts on behalf of 
peace, but by multitudes of strug- 
gling folks to whom he had been the 
means of bringing some praactical 

The pope was born from those ar- 
istrocratic origins that make some 
people indifferent to sufferings of 
the masses. But back when he was 
priest, he used to give so much 
money to relieve poverty that he had 
scarcely enough for his own needs. 
When he became cordinal he gave 
away so much that he could hardly 
meet the expenses of his high office, 
and his life as pope was similarly 
marked by plain living. Through his 
efforts great collections were made 
to relieve the war sufferers. 

Too ooften, when people reach po- 
sitions of power, they forget the dif- 
ficulties of the common people. Pope 
Benedict's memory will be cherished 
as a personal friend by multitudes 
that were helped by his beneficence. 

I* Practical Rural Progrett. 

Farmers and other people often 
say that it is very easy for newspa- 
per writers to sit down in their com- 
fortable offices and tell the folks who 
are up against the actual problems 
of rural work, what they ought to do 
to improve things. Particularly at 
the present time, when the farmers 
are encountering exceptional diffi- 
culties owing to low food prices. 

Yet anyone who has watched the 
advance that many country towns 
have made in the past 10 years, must 
have been impressed with the results 
that can be accomplished by a small 
group of men, or even by single in- 
dividuals, who are determined to 
improve their product or service. 

Such people may or may not have 
any education. Usually such men have 
had some advantages, for good 
school training greatly imprives a 
person's chances in life. But often 
they are men who have had but lit- 
tle schooling, and they may be rather 

Yet people of this type are con 
stantly working for superior at 
tainment. If they are stock growers, 
they are constantly improving their 
herds. If they raise crops, theg get 
the best seed and are the most in. 
duatriouB and watchful in cultiva 
tion. They set an example of super 
iority that has its influence over i 
whole town, and the level of excel 
lence they maintain, encourages oth 
era to strive for abetter product. 

Men of this kind have been promi 
nent in movements to secure better 
marketing conditions for farmers, 
and to secure for the producer more 
of the profit that haa been absorbed 
by the middlemen. While such peo- 
ple are always busy and they work 
long hours with untiring energy yet 
they always seem to find time to 
plan for better methods of market- 
ing and more advantages for the 
home town. A town that haa men 
this type is sure to go ahead.

One of the seven legislative pro- 
posals made by the Kentucky Chil- 
dren's Code Commission to the 
Governor and General Assembly calls 
for the enactment of 'an adult pro- 
bation law such as is now in effect 
in all but thirteen of the American 

"We have probation in the juv- 
enile courts, and a slight approach 
to it rh*'-~v..^i courts," said Miss 
Frances Ingram, of Louisville, chair- 
man of the Commission, in comment- 
ing on the recommendation. "But 
we still lack a real probation system, 
for adults as well as children, and 
probation officers duly qualified are 
the very heart and soul of such a 
system. The proposed act provides 
for the appointment of probation 
officers in any court in the discre- 
tion of the judges and prescribes 
their powers and duties. Many 
judges in Kentucky have expressed 
themselves as being handicapped in 
their work by not having at their 
disposal the services of probation of- 

"There is much misunderstanding 
as to the meaning of probation," 
Miss Ingram continued. "Probation 
is the method by which the com- 
munity, through its courts, seeks to 
supervise, discipline, and reform of- 
fenders without imprisoning them. 
It is used especially for young or 
first offenders and others not har- 
dened in vice or in need of the care, 
protection or discipline of the state, 
are, after investigation by the pro- 
bation officer, conditionally given 
their liberty, usually under suspen- 
sion of sentence, and are placed un- 
der the authoritative, helpful over- 
sight of aman or woman attached 
to the court in the capacity of pro- 
bation officer. 

"The greatest need of the juvenile 
courts in Kentucky is more and bet- 
ter qualified probation officers. Sal- 
aries are entirely inadequate. Adult 
probation when properly used, is 
safe and successful and has become 
as important and valuable a part of 
the correctional system in states like 
New York, Massachusetts and New 
Jersey, as have the state reforma- 
tories. Judges can safely be entrust- 
ed with the power conferred by the 
proposed adult probation law of Ken- 
tucky. The appointment of probate 
officers would be in the discretion of 
the judges, salaries to be determin- 
ed by the city or county boards. 
Their appointment in courts hand- 
ling family cases, such as non-sup- 
port,^ desertion and divorce, would 
secure the most important feature 
of the so-called domestic relations 


Prominent among the instruments 
by which the business world meas- 
ures commercial conditions, are the 
figures of bank clearings and bank- 
ruptcies. Bank clearings might be 
called the thermometer of business, 
registering its periods of warm en- 
thusiasm, also as some might say, its 
times of cold feet. And bankruptcies 
are the barometer, a storm signal re- 
cording the presence of industrial 
and economic tempests. 

Bank clearings for 1921 were 25 
per cent below those of 1920. But no 
such decline in business occurred, 
since the prices of merchandise and 
raw materials must have averaged 
at least 20 per cent lower in 1921 
than in 1920. It would see, os if the 
actual volume of business done could 
not have fallen more than five per 

Furthermore, it is noticed that 
bank clearings do not usually record 
business changes until after they hap 
pen since so many of the payments 
for goods are not made until a con- 
siderable time after the goods are 
completed. Consequently the Urge 
revival in business occurring in the 
latter half of 1921 has not fully 
shown itself in these figures. 

Bankruptcies for 1921 were not as 
large as in 1915, though exceeding 
all other years. The total liabilities 
for 1921 were a little more .than 
twice those of 1915. But since trans- 
actions during 1921 were measured 
in greatly enlarged prices, this in- 
crease in total liabilities is not re- 
markable. 1916 was a year above 
the average, as the country was get- 
ting a lot of war business from Eu- 
rope then. 

The business world has cause for 
satisfaction that no worse results 
followed the big price decline of 1920 
and 1921. If the extent and sudden- 
ness of that fall had been foreseen, 
twice as many business catastrophes 
would have been predicted. The fact 
that the country has got along as 
well as it has in the face of this 
shock, shows that conditions are es- 
sentially sound, and gives reason to 
expect a large measure of prosperi- 
ty in 1922.

Stock growers have for some years 
realized the gains that come from 
developing thoroughbred animals. 
Some communities have forged 
ahead by specializing on some one 
type of farm animal and gaining a 
reputation for superiority in that 
line. Fruit growers that take more 
pains with their products are the 
ones who acquire the widest and 
most dependable reputation, and 
they get enhanced prices. The same 
tendencies exist in all lines of pro- 

Buyers of food products are get- 
ting more discriminating every 
year, and they like to buy in local- 
ities that have a reputation for turn- 
ing out a superior quality of stuff. 

Old time agriculture was a ma- 
chine grinding out a mass of pro- 
ducts without much effort in any 
locality for superiority. But today it 
has become a sharply competitive 
race between different sections, to 
see which shall turn out the best stuff 

Most rural sections would gain if 
they would make some one speciality 
prominent enough to get a reputa- 
tion on that one line. While depend- 
ence on one crop is not desirable, 
some line of production ought to be 
developed to such a prominence and 
excellence that a locality would have 
its own special reputation.

Rogers, Massachusetts Republican, 
stated in the house on January 30th 
that he believed that the disabled 
soldiers were getting poorer service 
through the Veterans' Bureau than 
they were getting six months ago, 
and that he also thought that the 
service of six months ago was not 
so good as it had been six months 
before that time. In other words, he 
admitted that the service is poorer 
since Harding became President than 
under Wilson, and that it is grow- 
ing worse.

Dawson Springs, Ky., Feb. 7th. — 
Wednesday, February 22, has been 
designated by the U. S. Treasury De- 
partment, as the date for the dedica- 
tion of the mammoth war veterans' 
sanitarium which has just been com- 
pleted here. 

This dedication will be one of 
staewide importance and will mark 
the turning over of Uncle Sam's best 
hospital to the ex-service men. On 
this day the keys to the gigantic in- 
stitution will be handed to Lieut- 
Col. H. E. Whitledge oof the United 
{states Public Health Service Depart- 
ment, commanding officer of the san- 
atorium, who is a former Kentuck- 

The Sanatorium which has just 
been completed is composed of a 
unit of twenty-two buildings and is 
located in a r.,000-acre tract of land 
donated to the government by the 
citizens of Dawson Springs, Hopkins- 
ville, Madisonville and other Ken- 
tucky people. The f'.KO acre gov- 
ernment reservation is located in the 
counties of Hopkins, Christian and 

The commercial organization of 
MadLsonviUe and Hopkinsville are 
aiding the Dawson Springs Commer- 
cial Club in making arrangements 
for the dedication, at which it is est- 
imated there will be some fifteen 
thousand people in attendance. The 
dedicatory address will be delivered 
by Gov. E. P. Moorrow, and National 
Officers yet to be selected, and the 
occasion will be attended by some of 
the most prominent people in the 
United States, including the Amer- 
ican Legion and War Veterans Bu- 

The United States Government, as 
well as the citizens of this place, de- 
sire to extend an invitation to ev- 
ery peraon in Kentucky to be pres- 
ent on this day and view what the 
Treasury Department says in the 
best hospital unit in the world. 


How much money does it require 
to furnish the people of the United 
States with telephone service? 

It is a question frequently asked.

the home of the President of the 
United States, where he and his par- 
ty are in absolute and complete con- 
trol. The State of Ohio is shown to 
be profiteering off these poor unfort- 
unates. At Longview Asylum, Hamil- 
ton county, 240 of the inmates sleep 
on the floor like cats, and the tuber- 
cular patients have not been separat- 
ed from the others. There are hun- 
dreds of curable cases of insanity 
there that receive no treatment for 
their mental disorder. And all the 
while the State of Ohio is making 
heavy profit off each soldier from 
the money paid by the Federal Gov- 
ernment for the care of these men 
and boys — the boys who went march- 
ing off to war, who crossed the seas 
to fight the battles of civilization, 
singing on the road — your neighbor's 
son among them, perhaps. Dr. E. 
North, superintendent of Longview 
admitted in a statement that these 
things are true. 

A profit was made in 1921 by the 
State of Ohio on each insane soldier 
that amounted close to $300.

Frankfort, Ky. — The first real pol- 
itical battle of the 1922 session was 
waged in the Kentucky Senate when 
Democrats lined up solidly behind 
Senator W. A. Perry's bill relating 
to the removal of party emblems 
from ballots in cities of the first 

The Republican members called 
into play all parliamentary tactics 
in an egort to delay consideration, 
hnt a silid Democrat vote swept 
aside every attempt of the minor- 
ity. The final vote was 19 to 15 for 
the bill. 

The so-called party emblem bill 
affect* only the city of Louisville 
and, according to Republicans, is 
intended to disfranchise many ne- 
gro voters. A similar measure has 
been introduced in the House, and 
party leaders there predict that it 
will be passed. 

Measures intended to make more 
stringent the present prohibition 
laws were passed in the Senate today 
The first offered by Senator J. R 
Rash, extends to Quarterly and Po- 
lice Courts and to Justices of the 
Peace concurrent jurisdiction with 
Circuit Judges in trials foor viola- 
tions oof the 1920 prohibitiono laws. 
The second bill, introoduced by Sen- 
ator B. T. Davis, satisfies certan 
constitutional requirements pertain- 
ing to the Rash bill. 

Under the provisions oof the bill 
lower courts may try cases for vio- 
lations of the law to prohibit the 
manufacture, sale, transportation or 
or other disposition of spirituous li- 
quors, and assess fines up to $800. 
Lower courts also may issue search 
warrants upon the affidavit of ono 
reputable citizen. Other provisions 
call for the forfeiture of property 
and make more stringent the prison 

Objection to features of the bill 
were made by Senator R. 0, Sim- 
mons, Covington. He objected to the 
provisions granting search warrant* 
and opposed the prison sentence and 
property flrfeiture clause*.

Arrested on a Serious Charge- 
Ralaatad on Bond. 

il Regenbogen, of Constance, 
arrested by Sheriff Hume and 
Deputy Snyder, last Friday morning, 
under a Warrant charging Mr. Reg- 
enbogen with a statutory offense. 
Mr. Bagenbogen was released by the 
County Judge after he had executed 
a bond for his appearance for an 
examining trial to be held Saturday, 
Feb, 18th, 1922. Mr. Regenbigen de- 
nies the charge and says that he will 
show by witnesses, that this charge 
is without merit. 

Mr. Regenbogen is employed in 
the United States mail service with 
headquarters in Cincinnati, and he 
is now a clerk on a Cincinnati-Chatt- 
aooga mail train. He is married and 
lives with his family in Conatance. 


The old fashioned valentine was a 
very lovey dovey affair. It was a 
sugary display of sentiment, pur- 
chased and sent by young people at 
the period of puppy love, when they 
felt intoxicated by mushy sentiment. 

Young fellows would dream for 
weeks of Valentine's day, as a time 
when they could perhaps dare to ex- 
press their emotion to their object 
of adoration. They would trembling- 
ly purchase the most sentimental one 
they could find and live in anxiety for 
the subsequent days to see how she 
took it. Usually she took it all right, 
as girls like to be adored. Only the 
popular girl had so maay missives of 
this kind, that she was embarrassed 
in her dealings with the various 

At the other extreme of sentiment 
was the old time comic valentine, 
consisting of coarse and insulting 
pictures and verses, sometimes ob- 
scene, that were sent to anyone for 
whom a person conceived dislike. 
The demand for that kind of thing 
was a proof of the bad manners of 
those days. 

The modern valentine has improv- 
ed over those days. It is more an af- 
fair of friendship than love, and us- 
ually it pays pretty and graceful 
compliment* without meaning any- 
thing serious. The makers of these 
missives show the improving taste of 
the times. Whereas old time valen- 
tines were crude combinations of 
lace paper and highly colored pic- 
tures, many of the modern one3 
show good design in color and draw- 

Perhaps this changed taste in val- 
entines suggests a more intelligent 
way of looking at love. Young folks 
who show too much sentiment at an 
age when marriage is imprudent, 
make themselves ridicilous nowaday". 
Instead of arousing sympathy for 
their lorn condition, they are apt to 
get laughed at for calf love. 


The new requirement of the in- 
come tax law that returns shall be 
made of gross income of $5,000 or 
more regardless of the amount of 
net income upon which the tax is as- 
sessed, necessitates careful compu- 
tation on the part of the taxpayer. 
"Gross income" includes practically 
every dollar received by the taxpay- 
er during the year 1921 in salaries, 
wages, commissions, rents, royalties, 
interest on bank deposits, cash div- 
idends on stock, "or income from any 
source whatsoever." "Net income" 
is gross income leas certain deduc- 
tions provided for by the act, includ- 
ing all business expenses incurred in 
the conduct of a business, trade, pro- 
fession, or vocation. 

Certain expenditures, however, are 
not deductible as a business expense 
when made for the purchase of ar- 
ticles more or less permanent in 
character, or for permanent im- 
provement of property. For example, 
a merchant would not be allowed to 
deduct the amount expended in the 
erection of a new store, or a farmer 
the cost of a new tractor or thresh- 
ing machine, since such investments 
are held to be capital investments. 
The law expressly prohibits the de- 
duction of family or living expenses, 
such- as rent for a dwelling, repairs, 
to a dwelling, cost of food and cloth- 
ing for the- family, education of 
children, servant's wages, and sim- 
ilar itemsi Amounts spent during the 
year 1921 for any of these items are 
not deductible. 



Enjoyod By Largo Crowd Last 
Friday Night. 

"OVER THE HILL" was enjoyed 
by more than two hundred and fifty 
people last Friday evening. The pic- 
ture, mechanically, was perfect and 
chanicaily, was perfect and the 
scenes were gems of the photograph- 
ers art. The first reel was shown at 
seven o'clock and at 10 the last pic- 
ture was on the screen. Pictures of 
the class of "OVER THE HILL" arc 
the best in the motion picture field, 
and our people should not fail to at- 
tend when pictures of that kind are 
shown. This picture had a straight 
run in New York, Chicago and other 
cities for months at $2.00 admission. 

The manager Mr. R. E. Berkshire, 
is to be commended for his efforts 
in bringing that picture to Burling- 
ton and Petersburg and shows that 
he wants to exhibit pictures that are 
worth while. Next Friday evening 
"THE BRUTE MASTER." The first 
picture will, be on the screen prompt- 
ly at 7 o'clock. You are requsted to 
be in your seat at that time. Admis- 
sion 10 and 25 cents. 

Pastor Enforcement Officer. 



Mayor Hermann of Newport, who 
says State troops are shooting, club- 
bing and otherwise mistreating citi- 
zens, invading homes, insulting wo- 
men, comes to the Legislature with 
a tale somewhat like that Tom Wat- 
so of Georgia earned to Congress. 

It is true that the Federal soldiers 
in Europe confined their crimes of 
violence to soldiers,- and used the 
gibet, according to Mr. Watson's 
narrative, whereas the Kentucky 
militiamen pitch into the civilians 
with clubs and rifles, if not with fire 
and sword. But blood lust is the com- 
mon attribute of the two forces. 

Apparently the Governor has done 


The oldest good story is the one 
about the boy who left the farm and 
got a job in the city. He wrote a let- 
ter to his brother, who elected to 
stick by the farm, telling the joys of 
city life, in which he said: 

"Thursday we auto'd out to the 
country club, where we golfed until 
dark. Then we motored to the beacli 
for the week-end." »* 

The brother on the farm wrote 

"Yesterday we buggied to town 
anl baseballed all the afternoon. 
Then we went to Ned's and pokered 
until morning. Today we muled out 
to the cornfield and gee-hawed until 
sundown. Then we suppered, and 
then we piped for a while. After that 
we staircased up to our room and 
bedsteaded until the clock lived." 

Chicago.— The Rev. John H. Wil- 
liamson, pastor of a Methodist Epis- 
copal church, has been appointed law 
enforcement commissioner of Chic- 
ago with supreme powers in caring 
for the city 'smoral welfare. 

His appointment to the post, es- 
pecially created by Mayor William 
Hale Thompson at the request of re- 
form and religious organizations, 
was announced by the Mayor and 
Mr. Williams resigned as pastor of 
his church and formally accepted the 
new position. 

In announcing his acceptance, the 
law enforcement commissioner de- 
clared his office would be conducted 
"in accordance with the teachings of 

He appealed to all Christian or- 
ganizations, regardless of race, col- 
or, and creed to join him in a crime 
drive which would forever rid Chic- 
ago of crooks, regardless of what 
strata of life they occupy. 

He was especially enjoined by 
Mr. Thompson to seek any ccrrup- 
officials and was informed that his 
decisions would be final whether 
they hit "the highest city officials or 
the lowest crook on the streets." 

"Any who seek a compromise, hin- 
der or thwart the purpose of the 
law enforcement commissioner will 
have their attention directed to a 
motto which will be placed on my 
desk," said Mr. Williamson in a for- 
mal statement. The motto reads: 

"Respect for the law is of more 
value than respect for the violator."

Independence of Rural Life. 

One great advantage of country 
life, is that men who show ambition 
and initiative can look forward to 
living an independent life. Whether 
as farmers, merchants or professional 
men, they are masters of their own 
lives. Even if they work in some 
rural factory, personal attention is 
paid to the needs of willing workers. 

If these folks live in cities, they 
are usually cogs in some big indus- 
trial machine and "their personal 
needs can not be considered. That is 
one reason why a multitude of men 
in cities are always trying to set up 
some independent business, but they 
can not usually compete with the big 
industries. Let them come out in the 
country, and then they can live their 
own independent lif<\ which ia worth 
many dollars.

In localities having heavy snows, this

The best chance for economic 
prosperity lies in the attempt to se- 
cure for the food producer a bigger 
share of the price the consumer 
pays. The manufacturers, for in- 
stance, are estimated to get around 
70 per cent of the price paid by the 
consumer. But the farmer has not 
been averaging 50 per cent of the 
price paid by the consumer of his 

In other industries, a large pro- 
portion of the product goes direct 
from the factory door to the retail 
store that sells to the consumer. But 
in farming, most of the product 
goes through a number of hands, 
with the labor, expenses and profit;* 
mounting at every turn. 

The farmer can n^t tf course 
spend much of his own time doing 
his own marketing, except in cases 
where he lives near a city or large 
town, and finds it pays to drive his 
own truck or sell to automobile par- 
tics. But he can co-operate with oth- 
er farmers to hire a competent man 
or men to do marketing for him. 

When marketing and distributing 
are done by middlemen in cities, 
they are burdened by many heavy 
expenses. The work is done in cost 
ly buildings in crowded city streets, 
where traffic is so congested that all 
kinds of work are costly. Land costs 
so high in those quarters that it 
would frequently be impossible t> 
secure adequate plants for sorting 
and distributing products except at 
tremendous expense. 

Where the work of distribution 
can be done by co operative associa- 
tions in country centers, it saves all 
the tremendous expense caused by 
high real estate and congested quar- 
ters in city distributing points. So 
this movement for co-operative mar- 
keting, now rapidly spreading over 
the country, promises to bring into 
the country a larger proportion of 
the consumer*! dollar, and produce 
a new level of prosperity that will 
make possible all kinds of so» ml, .-d 
ucational progress.

Resolutions presented last Sunday 
night for approval to the congrega- 
tions of virtually all of the Protest- 
ant churches of Newport, Ky., so 
that they may carry with them either 
the active or tactic support of the 
thousands of members of these 
churches, demand the immediate 
resignation of all public officials who 
have endeavored within the last few 
weeks to hamper the military auth- 
orities of Kentucky in the vigorous 
clean-up campaign they have inaug- 
urated in Newport. 

The resolutions were drawn by 
Rev. W. B. Harvey, of the First 
Baptist church. 

Submitted To Congregation. 
The full text of the resolutions, 
similar copies of which were submit- 
ted to the congregation in each of 
the churches, is as folows: 

"Whereas, the raids on the saloons 
and gambling dens of Newport by 
the Federal Prohibition officers and 
state troops, hauling away truckload 
after truckload of whisky and beer, 
much gambling parphernalia, many 
moinshine stills, and gathering into 
their net many of the noted crimin- 
als, was the greatest stroke for law 
enforcement, that this city ever wit- 
nessed; and, 

"Whereas, this intolerable condi- 
tion and utter disregard for law with 
all its ramifications has been brought 
about and reached its huge propor- 
tions under the lax administration 
of our laws by officers, some of whom 
are still in office; therefore, 

"Be it resolved, first, that we ex- 
press our whole-hearted approval of 
the clean-up without reservation or 
equivocation; that we commend the 
manly and courageous stand of Gov- 
ernor E. P. Morrow and U. S. Dis- 
trict Attorney Sawyer Smith; that 
we beseech the courts to show no 
lienency, but to inflict the maximum 
penalty in every case prpven guilty, 
especially do we believe that the jail 
sentences would be particularly 
wholesome in this event; that we, 
believing that the hour has come for 
the law-abiding citizens of Newport 
to take charge of and manage their 
own affairs, call upon the business 
men, every civic organization, every 
fraternal order and all decent, law- 
abiding citizens to take their stand 
openly and boldly for law and order; 
that we condemn as undesirable and 
lawless citizens all who utter adverse 
criticism of this clean-up movement 
and recommend that their names be 
given to the authorities that such 
to I persons may be kept under survcil- 

Second, that we urge the author- 
ities to continue operations until the 
clean-up is final and complete. 

Third, that we respectfully ask 
our City Commissioners to revoke at 
once the license of every man found 
to be violating the law in his place 
of business and to pass an ordinance 
forbidding saloons, cafes and soft 
drink establishments from using 
blinds, stained or frosted glass, or 
any other means of obstructing a 
full view of their premises from the 
streets at all times. 

Fourth, that we condemn the at- 
titude and action of all public offi- 
cers who have endeavored to embar- 
rass, harrass, hinder or interfere 
with authorities of the state and Fed- 
eral Government in their efforts to 
clean up our city; that we ask them 
to resign at once, and if they refuse 
do so willingly, that we beseach both 
the state and federal authorities to 
invoke all the power at their com- 
mand to remove such persons from 

"Fifth, that we express our confi- 
dence in our Sheriff, Mr. Tieman and 
Safety Commissioner Thomasson but 
that we beg Mr. Thomasson to use 
every means at his command to get 
rid of all undesirable policemen, par- 
ticularly those who have sons and 
kinsmen that are the most noted 
gamblers and law violators of the 
city and county. It is our firm con- 
viction that if such men are left on 
the police force and some of our 
public officers are allowed to remain 
in office that the clean-up can have 
no permanent results. 


What a wonderful fellow that maa 
is who never makes a mistake. Yoo. 
know him. We all have at least an* 
on our acquaintance list. He cannot 
conceive that it is human to err, and 
therefore he permits no one, from 
the wife down, to doubt anything 
he says or does. A characteristic of 
this mighty man is that he insists on 
personally doing everything that ia 
to be done in his vicinity because 
there's nobody who can do it right, 
or anyhow as well as he. We juat 
simply hold our breath in fear of 
what will happen to the community 
when he dies. Of course everything 
will go to smash. Of course! 


Miss Lena Florence Adams, of 
Fairview, and Mr. Gliden Juett Poor, 
of Doudton, were married on Feb. 8, . 
at th eMethoidist parsonage, at Wil- 
liamstown, by Rev. J. R. Noland. . 
They were accompanied by Miss 
La vane ie Rue and Mr. Oakley Ad- 
ams. The bride is the daughter of 
Mr. and Mrs. C. D. Adams, and the 
third young lady of Fairview to be- 
come a bride recently.. The groom 
who is a young farmer, is' the son of

County Record Office Damag- 
ed -Grocery store Burned 
i Business Section 

A few days ago the county ani 
circuit clerk's office in Williamstown 
were destroyed by fire, the records 
were kept in a vault and but little 
damage was done the court records. 
The fire originated in a grocery store 
adjoining which was destroyed. The 
fire was discovered about 10:30 p. 
m., and it took good work to prevent 
other buildings near the fire from be- 
ing destroyed. Mrs. A. Carter, moth- 
er of Rev. R. H. Carter, of Peters- 
burg, resided on the second floor of 
the building that was destroyed ani 
was rescued by Kirtley Barnes. The 
Grant County News says: 


The act of Kirtley Barnes in res- 
cuing Mrs. Carter from the flames it 
characterized on all sides an act of 
heroism which has no parallell here. 
Mrs. Carter was asleep in her apart- 
ments over the grocery and the low- 
er part of the building was a solid 
mass of flames. The stairway built 
on the outside of the building was 
burning rapidly. Mr. Barnes ran up 
the burning stairway, broke into 
Mrs. Carter's room, wrapped her in 
the bed clothing while smoke nearly 
stifled him and flames licked hie 
clothing. By this time the stairway 
was burning so fiercely it was im- 
possible to descend, and Barnes car-^ 
ried Mrs. Carter to the front win- 
dow, kicked it out and stepped on* 
to the roof of the porch, while with 
I gentle hands Mrs. Carter was passed 
to the ground and received by other 
men. She suffered no injuries, but 
was under the care of physicians for 
several hours due to the shock she 
received. The floor wss burning rap- 
idly when Mr. Barnes rescued Mrs.. 
Carter and fell in only a few mo- 
ments later. 


I wish to thank my neighbors, 
friends and K. of P. brothers for the 
woodsawing they gave me last Wed- 
nesday afternoon. I certainly appre- 
ciated it. Such deeds are not forgot- 
ten. A friend in need is a friend ji- 
deed. Those present were:

cording to latent estimates of the

Overheated cook stoves and fur- 
naces cause many fires at this time 
of year. This peril is created not 
merely by efforts to force a fire for 
heating purposes on a cold day, bus 
even more by carelessness with the 
drafts. Many people will open wide 
all drafts <*rd dampers of a stove 
or heater, and then forget all about 
it and leave tNe house «er -go* to bed. 

If a chimney has a good draft, a 
tremendously strong air current is 
sweeping through that stove or 
heater, and a stroke pipe may be- 
come red hot. If any wood touches 
the same, it is likely to catch tire. If 
people are in the house and awako 
they usually smell an overheated 
condition* and take care of it Hut 
if they have left the pUtte, or have 
go«w- to sleep, the situation i< a 
perilous one

Died at His Homo In Ludlow 

After a Few Days Illness 

With Pneumonia. 

The news of the death of James L. 
Riley, which occurred at his home in 
Ludlow, Monday morning at 10:30 
o'clock, came as a shock to his many 
friends in Boone county, where he 
was born and raised and where he 
had spent most of his life, until a 
few years ago, when he moved to 
Ludlow. Very few knew that he had 
been sick, when the announcement of 
his death came. He had been con- 
fined to the house for several days 
with a severe cold, but had not call- 
ed a physician until a day or two be- 
fore his death, when pneumonia had 
developed, causing his sudden pass- 
ing away. 

He is survived by his widow and 
a number of nephews and nieces. He 
was in his 77th year, and was born

constructed under the joint super- 
vision of the Federal Government 
and the States during 1921, accord- 
ing to reports of the Bureau of Pub- 
lic Roads of. the United States De- 
partment of Agriculture. Federal 
money amounting to $94,057,080 
was allotted to these roads, the total 
cost of which was $231,963,682. In 
this mileage there is included 8,595 
miles in projects wholly completed 
and the equivalent of 3,335 miles of 
work done on projects which are hot 
wholly completed. Every .State shar-

The projects under way during the 
year amounted to 31,228 miles, 
which was about one-half of all the

of the magnitude of the road work

Hartford, Conn,. Feb. 13.— Plans 
for a state hospital, given over en- 
tirely to ex-service men, and named 
for Frederick W. Galbraith, the late 
commander of the American Legion 
who was killed in an automobile ac- 
cident last sping, have been endorsed 
by Governor Lake. 

The project, formulated by Mr, 
Fanny 1. Crosby, head of the Amer- 
ican Legion auxiliary in Connecticut, 
calls for subscriptions from the gen- 
eral public, raised through the units 
of the auxiliary, ettch of which would 
-endow a room in the hospital and 
name it for a man who gave his life 
in the service. 

The plans also call for a state ap- 
propriation, which the governor has 
promised to push. No decision as to 
the location of the personal hospital 
has been reached.

Frankfort, Ky. — Nine-year old 
Miss Virginia Strange, daughter of 
Representative L. Strange of Bowl 
ing Green, was made an honorary 
page of the House by a unanimous 
vote. She was introduced to the 
House by Representative C. B. Ma- 
nor of Perryville. 
Frankfort, Ky. — The . Thompson 
tax bill was passed by the House af- 
ter more than three hours of de- 
bate by a vote of 58 to 21. 

With the 1920 assessment as a 
basis the present bill cuts the state 
revenue by more than $1,000,000, 
but it is expected that increased as- 
sessments on hitherto unlisted prop- 
erty will make up the loss. 

The bill also widens the powers of 
the State Tax Commission by allow- 
ing that body to order increases in 

Several amendements were offered 
but only one was voted into the bill. 
It was by Representative Lucien 
Drury, giving to the public the right 
to appeal from assessments, 
Frankfort, Ky. — The Kentucky 
House of Representatives, by a vote 
of 70 to 10 went on record as being 
in favor of selecting County School 
Superintendents by direct vote. It 
passed a bill introduced by William 
Boling, of Meade county, doing 
away with the 1920 law for appoint- 
ment of the Superintendents, after 
amending the bill so that it will re- 
main an appointive office until 1925. 
The most important Dill, besides 
the school, bill, acted upon by the 
House was that of Harry J. Meyers, 
of Covington, forbidding the use of 
daylight saving time by an corpora- 
tion in Kentucky. Thj 8 bill forbids 
time being changed in any part of the 
state unless the entire state changes, 
Frankfort, Ky.— Opponents of tha 
present school law gained a point 
and lost one in the House when Rep- 
resentative J. B. Wicker succeeded 
in drawing his bill to re-establish 
county teachers' certificates from the 
Committee on Education No. 2, and 
Representative T. O. Holder, who 
tried to do the same with his bill, 
repealing that part of the law which 
provides for the election of the coun- 
ty board of education and appoint- 
ment of the superintendent, failed 
t.i accomplish it. Mr. Wicker's bill 
was read into the calendar. 

Representative L. J. Jeter of Lin- 
coln cpunty, chairman of the com- 
mittee, said he was willing to re- 
port Mr. H
